On a hot summer night in Paris, Félix meets a young woman, Alma, and falls in love. The next morning, Alma hops on a train to join her family in southern France. Félix, determined to follow his soulmate, embarks on a carpool ride with his best friend Chérif and their reluctant driver Edouard. When the car breaks down upon arrival, things turn sour: Alma doesn’t seem too pleased by this unexpected visit.
He studied film production at the prestigious La Fémis film school and immediately began producing his own shorts.

L’île au trésor, his third feature film, premiered in Karlovy Vary and was considered one of the top 10 films of the year by Cahiers du Cinéma.
