Director's Biography

David Depesseville was born in Nevers, France, in 1976.

He went on to make the shorts Le Dépeuplé, Les Lendemains qui chantent for the rock band Les Thugs, and La Dernière Plaine.

In the presence of the film crew

Samuel is a rough-looking twelve-year-old orphan. Marie, Clément, and their two sons have been fostering him for a few weeks in the Morvan region of France. Samuel cuts loose, diving into teenage self-discovery, but must also face up to the secrets of his new family—until, one day, everything changes.
