• synopsis

    Merle follows Romuald to the South of France. But she arrives, she only meets his children, Emma and Felix. Wouldn’t it be wiser to leave at once? Or should she look after them? Did she expect too much from this invitation? Merle decides to have a good time at the villa above the sea. But Romualds’ absence cannot just be ignored. An ambiguous summer. A film about days that slip away like in a dream.
