    • Synopsis
    • ANDRÉ is going through a midlife crisis. His job no longer interests him, his marriage is over and he is feeling disillusioned and generally disinterested in the world. He's spent the last six months alone in a cabin in the forest.

      André's peace is disrupted when he comes across a young man lying unconscious on his property. COIOTE is a sincere, sensitive youth who lives entirely in the here-and-now. Coiote is part of a group of people squatting in an abandoned manor, where they've set up a temporary occupation. There, released from the economic, social and amorous paradigms of the system, these nomads can celebrate their companionship and liberty.

      What starts out as a bother for André gradually turns into an unlikely friendship. Coiote is a mirror in which André sees his own youth. But the last thing this loner in search of emotional comfort was expecting was to find himself caught up in a new, transgressive passion and to have his ex-wife and their daughter turn up for an unexpected visit.

      The wheel of fortunes that so mysteriously brought Coiote into André's life is now spinning ever faster, ushering André toward a whole new phase in his life.
