    • Synopsis
    • Summer is near and classes are coming to an end
      in a former industrial town on the end of a large bay.

      Léo, a young and disaffected girl, meets Steve,
      a reclusive and aimless guitarist. Léo lives with
      her mother and stepfather Paul, a populist radio
      show host who forced her father into exile up
      north. Sylvain, Léo’s father, is a dethroned union
      leader whom she greatly misses.

      A stranger in her own world, frustrated and angry,
      it is through her budding relationship with Steve,
      set to the rhythm of their guitar lessons and her
      new summer job, that she’ll be able to find some
      kind of comfort and ultimately take flight.
