Short Film – Quebec – 2015 – 10:28 min
Color | French with English subtitles | 2:39:1 | Dolby SRD


Olivier and Alex, two jaded teenagers, wander without purpose in a nightly suburb. In preparation of a debauchery evening, they get wasted, smoke some joints and talk about sex. Their conversation drifting, they sink into a night of errancy and disinhibition under the music of neons, motors and distant barking. A sensible and sincere look on a confused and reflective adolescence.
