Synopsis

A mysterious calamity strikes: spring doesn’t come. In a village deep in the Ardennes the cycle of nature is capsized. WINTER — In which Alice, a farmer’s daughter, and Thomas, a reclusive teenager, are in love. And in which the annual bonfire celebrating the end of winter fails to burn. SPRING — In which the bees vanish, the seeds won’t grow and the cows refuse to give milk. And in which the first victim falls. SUMMER — In which a passing flower vendor brings ephemeral joy. And in which insects abound, panic mounts and violence explodes. FALL — In which all civility has dissolved. And in which the angels take flight.
