A dreamy and poetic directorial debut that is part coming of age, part love story, and part ghost story
Bastien and Chloé meet during a summer vacation spent with their families on a lake in rural Quebec. Although she’s older than him, the two spend a lot of time together and develop a singular bond. For Bastien, though, there’s more at stake: in order to win Chloé’s heart, he must overcome his worst fears. Based on the graphic novel “Une sœur” by Bastien Vivès, Charlotte Le Bon’s directorial debut tells of a pivotal moment in the life of a young boy.
