100% identical.
Not a shadow of a doubt.
So, my question to you is Explain it.
I like to do quantum physics.
Nothing's tangible.
I'll pay you back.
I swear I will.
I want you out of my house! - Vanessa! Vanessa! - Mom! - Camille and I will go settle in Canada.
- You can't take her from me.
And it's tonight at 8 p.
that the ERN recommissions its particle accelerator That kid, Hugo, in 2011.
Sam and Bilal, four years ago.
Each time, there was a test at the ERN.
What do you want, Victor? You wanna go back in time? Exactly.
That's what I want.
What is it? I don't know.
Wait, hang on.
Did it work? Could it have? I have no idea.
Hurry up! Victor? 22 MARCH 2021 DISAPPEARANCE ALER "2021.
" PARALLELS Wait, March 22nd? That means we returned to the day after the party? But why does it say we disappeared with Bilal? And where's Bilal? And Sam hasn't disappeared? So where is he? - Victor? - Yeah? - Stop talking, please.
- Okay.
Mom she's alive.
She's alive.
I have to go see her.
She's not well, right? We don't know how she'd react.
Let's go.
Come on.
Watch out.
He's alive.
He's alive! You're right.
I can't believe it.
He hasn't changed.
He's handsome.
Seriously? - I'm kidding.
- Sam, sweetheart? I missed him.
- Wait, I'll help you.
- No, I'm fine.
I'm fine.
Alice Alice.
Let's go.
- Come on.
- No, Victor.
- Victor! - Let go! Victor? What was that? - They never forgave me.
- What are you talking about? Sam.
The way they looked at me afterwards.
It's all forgotten.
- They know it was an accident.
- I'm not so sure.
Victor, go to bed, please.
It's late.
I'm going with Sam in the ambulance.
Stay with your mother.
Dad, I'm sorry.
Victor? Victor, where are we going? I don't know.
I'm following you.
We have to find someone who can help us.
Sorry, kids, but this is my place.
Belkabir? Do I know you? He's Victor, and I'm Romane.
So, if you made it back from the future, it means that the man in the car actually was Bilal.
He needed me and I refused.
You couldn't have known it was Bilal.
But he's my son.
My son.
I didn't know him.
He He came to me, and all I could do was was yell at him.
I described what he looked like to the police.
I'm such a fool.
I need to find him before they do.
It's Lieutenant Retz.
Belkabir? Come on.
Hurry up! Don't move.
I brought some coffee.
Hmm? I brought decaf.
Thinking, uh May I come in? Uh yeah.
Sugar? Uh no, I'm fine.
You look tense.
You all right? I just haven't slept all night.
I bet.
Yes, of course.
I won't be long.
I wanted to talk to you about the statement you made the first night.
You mentioned a conversation with a stranger, who called you "Mom" several times.
I think he's all right.
And I can't really explain why but I'm sure he is.
Belkabir? You know what? I I don't remember.
Why is that? Well, I've thought it over and, uh Um, do you know when you repeat a word so many times in your head - that it stops making sense? - Mmm? Well, same for me.
I understand.
Romane, Victor, you can come down.
Well, you okay? He was really bizarre.
It must've had to do with Bilal's fingerprints.
I need to find him.
- You know where he is? - No.
But I think that Sam does.
You two stay right here.
All right? - Promise.
- Okay.
What are you doing? I have to go check up on Camille.
I won't talk to her, and I'll keep my distance.
- Should I go too? - No, it's fine.
- You sure? - Yeah, see you.
Hi, this is Sam.
I'm not here, so leave me a message.
Sam, call me back.
It's urgent.
Hey, Lisa, have you seen Sam? No, ma'am.
- Hello, Mrs.
- Hello.
- Still no news on Bilal? - No, nothing.
- Can I help you with anything? - Actually, I'm looking for Sam.
Samuel Deslandes.
No, Sam's not here.
- All right, thank you.
- You're welcome.
Hello, Alice.
I keep calling Sam, and he won't pick up.
Is he here? He's at school.
He insisted on going.
Um could you ask him to call me back when he returns, please? Thanks.
Sofia? What is this about? Uh I'm just trying to understand what happened.
But if you want me to leave him alone, I understand.
No, no, it's fine.
I didn't mean it that way.
We've both lost a son.
We're trying our best.
So, if Sam can help you It's just that he It's just that he's been acting very odd.
I mean, last night, he even stole food from the refrigerator.
Communication was easy with him, and now I feel that I feel like he's different.
Like his brother.
Arnaud and I failed at something with Victor.
I wouldn't want the same thing to happen with Sam.
So, I tell myself that, um, maybe he needs to confide, and I'm not the right person.
He's known you for a while.
He trusts you, so - I thought maybe you could - Of course.
You can count on me.
Listen Victor, uh, he is gifted.
With high potential.
These kids tend to be hypersensitive, huh? You're good parents.
Everything is gonna be fine.
I like you, little kitty.
You're cute.
Are you hungry? Oh, sweetheart.
I was so scared.
Come on.
Let's go.
Hi, this is Sam.
I'm not here, so leave me a message.
It's me.
All good? Did you drive her home from school? Thanks, darling.
I don't know what I'd do without you.
Yeah, see you tonight.
You're all right? Mm-hmm.
You're seem pale.
You should see a doctor.
I did.
He told me, "Don't get stressed out".
That was really his advice? Tell me, have you heard about happy heart syndrome? Uh no.
It's when your heart swells and explodes with happiness.
Well, if Romane returned and I had a heart attack that second then I'd die happy.
I'm sure she's fine.
I can't explain it, but I'm sure she is.
- It'll all work out, all right? - Yeah.
For you too, I hope.
- Been looking all over for you.
- I I know.
I know.
I-I have news for you.
We have news, and it's about Bilal.
I just don't want you to freak out.
Bilal is with you? Bilal? You look so much like your father.
I have a surprise for you as well.
Victor? Well, I'll leave you guys alone.
Bilal? You look exactly as I remember you.
You're pretty.
Okay, guys.
I see only one solution, actually.
- We alert the scientific community.
- No.
The whole world has to You didn't hear me out though.
What would you even say? "Hello, we, uh, had a small technical problem at the ERN.
" "We're time travelers, and we need to get back.
Can you help us?" Forget it.
Well, when you say it like that Don't you see that the three of us are defying the laws of physics? They'd just turn us into circus freaks.
- So, you have another idea? - Yes, you.
You told me there'd be another test in a few days.
We go to the bunker.
You change the test data, - and you make us return.
- No, it's too risky.
It's like, uh Hold on.
This is insane.
- That's my piggy bank.
- Uh That is you, right before the ERN test.
That is you, right now.
And you want to go back in time.
However You see? You're asking me to recreate the unpredictable! What if I sent you to 3,000 BC? Or if you come back and you're 100 years old? Sorry, but I have to agree with him, Sofia.
I don't wanna stay, after all we've been through.
I wanna be 14.
We all do.
Right, Victor? It's risky, but we don't have much choice.
Mom, they're right.
I don't wanna stay like this either.
I mean, you really want us like this? We can't stay this way.
Let's assume Let's assume I try.
I can't keep you here with all the cops around.
Where do I hide you? I'm crushing you a bit.
Don't worry.
I don't mind.
I guarantee he doesn't mind.
Hey, Victor, cut it out.
Happy birthday, son.
Better late than never.
What is this? - No way.
- It's a doll.
Whoa! How did you know? - Great.
- Yeah, I think he's happy.
It's exactly what I wanted.
- Yet another robot.
- What? No, are you kidding me? This thing is This is straight from Japan.
A limited edition.
The helmet is stainless steel.
So, I'm going to say this for the thousandth time, in case you didn't get it yet.
Do not go out.
Don't go see anyone.
Not even your family.
Especially not your family.
- What if we do? - Well Have you seen Back to the Future? - Never.
- Seriously? Well, I'll spoil it then.
It's super dangerous, okay? Everything we do has consequences.
And some can be disastrous.
Sam? Should we go? I'm counting on you.
You're leaving? Well, yeah, Mom and Dad are waiting.
Oh, and of course you've gotta go.
Seriously, what's your problem with me? No problem.
No problem at all.
- See you.
- Okay.
Let's talk tomorrow then.
Watch the movie.
Where are you going now? - I need to go.
- Hold on.
- Didn't you hear what my mother said? - There's more to it.
I'll tell you later.
What? I'm hungry.
Want something? We'll get yelled at.
You look better than before.
To our reunion, pal.
So, what do you remember? In your future, I mean.
I have children, apparently.
No way! - You have kids? - Yeah.
- But you're just a kid.
Two years old.
- What do you mean? You've been playing with that doll all day, dude.
It's not a doll, it's a figurine.
It's different.
Okay, and? And with who? Who do you have kids with? I don't know.
Uh What do you mean you don't know? - Is she blonde or brunette? - I I said I don't know.
That's so lame, dude.
No, seriously.
Uh, you think forgetting everything makes me happy? Personally, I'd rather forget everything.
Last four years were a nightmare.
I hated it.
Mostly, it was just lonely.
But wasn't Romane there? Your parents too? My parents sent me away to boarding school.
But why would they do that? There's no way they'd do that to little Sam.
He's the favorite.
It must be weird for your brother, uh I mean, to see us all like this.
- He must feel, uh - So small? Like he doesn't belong? Now he knows what it feels like.
- I was worried sick about you, Victor.
- Worried about me? I thought you guys were dead, okay? I mean, every day, for four years, I sat there and wondered if I had anything to do with it.
- Why would you think that? - Because everyone else thought it! You're gonna make us disappear too? - It was Sam's idea.
- You need to tell the truth! Victor? Everyone thought so.
Victor? - I told the truth! - Victor? Victor! - You knew you could do that? - No.
I mean, I had this tingling sensation before, but I didn't think that Hold on.
Pretty cool, right? Ugh.
What? Is it gross? Super gross.
It's dangerous too.
Dangerous? Why's that? It's only an apple, but what if you get really angry? I mean, especially with that temper of yours Meaning what? I mean, dude, this is serious stuff.
The others won't believe it when they see No, no.
You can't talk about it.
At least, not yet.
It's me.
Please, stay calm.
I know it may sound crazy, but I'm from the future.
This isn't real.
You need to leave.
Mom, look at me.
It's me.
I'm your daughter.
I can tell you recognize me.
Look at me.
It's okay.
Calm down.
Did you take your medication? For your heart? Romane? I don't understand, Mom.
I just I love you so much.
I love you too, Mom.
I missed you so much.
I didn't want to go when we went to the bunker.
And I thought nothing had happened.
- And then I - I can't believe you're here.
Camille will be so excited.
Hervé mobile - Mom - Hmm? You gotta leave Hervé.
- What are you talking about? - You need to do it.
Come on, sweetie.
He proposed to me.
- We love each other.
- For now, but he's a bad man.
That's nonsense.
Why do you say that? Mom, he'll start gambling again, and it will cause issues.
He said he'd quit all that.
He promised to stop.
You can't trust Hervé.
Yes, I can help him get out of it.
I can stop him.
You say that all the time, but he's always going to be this way.
But that is my problem, not yours.
Yes, it's my problem.
And Camille's too.
No, no.
I'll will always protect you girls.
You won't always be here! Romane, tell me.
Tell me.
In four years, you'll have a heart attack.

How is it you know that? - My mother told us to stay here.
- That's why Enough! It's done now.
Is she all right? Yes, she's fine, but Camille's alone with Hervé.
I gotta get her out of there.

I'll go get her and bring her over here.
Okay? I'm coming with you then.
No, no.
No, you're not.
Guys, uh Romane, we'll find a solution for your sister, but we can't all go, uh My mom just said not to tamper with the future.
You wanna talk about the future, Bilal? In the future, my mother dies because of Hervé.

Yeah, right, go away, please.
How do you do it, Mr.
Deslandes? - How do you know my name? - Seriously, how do you do it? Drinking champagne, mingling with your friends, signing contracts, while your son's gone missing? You know nothing about my life.
