SYNOPSIS

It is summer and 27 year-old Sam is at the wheel of his Ford, heading due south. Sitting in the backseat are Mathieu and Léa, a brother and sister he met by chance on the road. Léa is beautiful, sexy and very feminine. She loves men. So does Mathieu.
On their long journey, far from highways and major roads, making their way to Spain, they will learn to know, confront, and love one another. But Sam has a secret, an old wound that alienates him from the others a little more each day.
Having been separated from his mother at a young age, this trip has one sole purpose for him: finding her...
From the director of WILD SIDE, THE CROSSING/LA TRAVERSEE and COME UNDONE/PRESQUE RIEN.
