Six-year-old Margaux wakes up early and sees her father packing boxes into his car. Her mother is still sleeping. As ‘In August’ progresses, we come to realise that seemingly casual events – watching Daddy shave, an argument at bathtime, a drive through the mountains – will soon take on great significance for the little girl, for from today everything in her young life will be different.
