Synopsis

Marion is 18 years old. Filled with grief since the loss of her sister, she has reached an age where she feels a vital need for freedom. One night, she embarks on a ride through the streets of Paris. What follows is an evening of encounters until Marion meets the impulsive and free-spirited Alex. Like a reunion of two lonely souls, their path will evolve into a rhythm of wandering in a city that youth no longer relates to, like a journey into the night.
