In the beginning, Abel and Junon had two children, Joseph and Elizabeth. Victim of a rare genetic condition, Joseph's only hope was a bone marrow transplant. As they and Elizabeth were incompatible, his parents conceived a third child in the hope of saving their son. But little Henri too was unable to help his brother, and Joseph died, aged 7.
After the birth of a fourth child, Ivan, the family gradually began to recover from the death of the firstborn. Un conte de Noël begins with the reappearance of the disease that took Joseph: Junon learns that she has leukaemia, and her only hope is to find a bone marrow donor amongst the members of her family. Christmas approaches, and the whole family gathers at the splendid parental home at Roubaix.
