    • Synopsis
    • His name is Romeo, hers is Julie, and ever since they were little the magic of the famous play by Shakespeare has drawn them together. They loved each other at age ten, as you might love your neighbour, but then life separated them and they grew up apart.

      Fifteen years later, after the death of her mother, Julie returns home for the first time to sell their old house. A house where she saw her parents fall in love... and break up. A house where she discovered Art, but where time’s stood frozen since the day her father died. A house she wants to let go of and free herself from.

      Romeo still lives next door. He grew up too, his innocence gone. Once an extreme sports competitor, he has been forced to call an end to his career and now shut away, in his bathroom, he creates a buzz over the internet. Posting videos from his cage he markets an image of himself... an image that has nothing in common with what Julie remembers of him.

      Finding love has been hard, Romeo and Julie want it like everyone else... But the barriers are there, the past weighs heavily on them and the journey into adulthood has been a prison. Looking for the invisible string that ties her heart with his, Romeo perches on his balcony, dressed in his wingsuit, weighed down by a secret that stops him from flying. And Julie, she transforms her house into a work of fine art, a way to reconcile her past with her need to find love.
