Le Ciel Flamand zooms in on the lives of three generations of women. Monique and her daughter Sylvie run a brothel on the border of West Flanders and France. Eline, Sylvie's six-year-old daughter, is fascinated by the mysterious workplace of her mother and grandmother, but she is never allowed inside. A dramatic event turns their lives upside down and family ties are put under pressure. Le Ciel Flamand is the second feature by Peter Monsaert, director of the internationally acclaimed Offline.

"With 2012's 'Offline', a drama about second chances in life, Belgium's Peter Monsaert won a best film award at the Amiens Festival and a Jury Special Prize in Festroia. In his new film, 'Le Ciel Flamand', Monsaert depicts the lives of three generations of women whose family ties restrained by a dramatic event." (Variety)
