Synopsis

David, who gets by doing odd jobs, meets Lena, who has just moved up to Paris, and falls in love. But soon after, his life is brutally interrupted by the sudden death of his sister. Beyond the shock, and the pain, David now finds himself alone with his young niece Amanda to care for.

Director’s Statement

It is the urgency of the present that has compellingly guided me towards the necessity of making this film. I felt the need to capture something extremely fragile, almost electrical, and feverish that is taking hold in these modern times and, in this case, in my city, Paris. Far from wishing to paint the portrait of a cataclysmic France, I wanted to start from this rather dark point of departure to “depressurize the cabin” in some sense... To work from there, not through renunciation and catastrophism, but through human relationships and feelings, the only combination possible for a more liveable world, in my view.
