When 17-year-old Lucas (Paul Kircher) finds his blithe teenage world suddenly shattered, his sense of self and place dissipates into overwhelming pain. As he turns inward, his worried mother (Juliette Binoche) finds it difficult to connect with, much less console, her once affectionate son. She agrees to send him to Paris to stay with his career-driven older brother (Vincent Lacoste) to help him find a way out of his despair. Left to his own devices and in search of solace, Lucas plunges into the sea of excitement, possibility, and anonymity of the city with near reckless abandon. Love and hope—the stakes of Christophe Honoré’s (Love Songs, Sorry Angel) stirring and profoundly personal tale could not be higher.
