After a teenager confesses her love to her legal guardian, the tenderness they once shared quickly turns bitter.

Director's Bio: Carrying in him an insatiable thirst to showcase the human condition in unique and contemplative ways, Alexandre Richard revels in pushing boundaries through psychologically-perplexing concepts, magical realism, expressionism, enthralling visuals and directorial aesthetic. His marriage of style and substance makes for thought-provoking storytelling that has garnered this self-taught filmmaker critical international acclaim. In the last years, Alexandre amassed over 50+ awards and nominations, including “Coup de coeur” at the 2020 Fantasia International Film Festival, “Best Canadian Film” at the Vancouver Independent Film Festival and Montreal Independent Film Festival and a total of 9 nominations at the 2020 and 2021 Berlin Commercial Awards.
