"You Will Be My Son" focuses on the problematic relationship between Paul Marseul, (Niels Arestrup), owner of a prestigious vineyard in Saint Emilion and his son, Martin (Loran Deutsch), who works with him on the family estate. Paul is a demanding and passionate winemaker but is a domineering father. He is not happy that his son may one day succeed him. He dreams of a son who is more talented, more charismatic . . . and more in line with his own aspirations. Things deteriorate as Paul’s trusted manager Francois (Patrick Chesnais) is dying of cancer. When Francois’ son Philip(Nicolas Bridet), also in the wine business, returns from California to look after his father, Paul sees Philip as his ideal son and turns away from his own flesh and blood.
