Set in 1967, the subtitled drama follows Sebastian (played by Sebastien Cippolla) and Angele (Suru, who also wrote and directed) as they create a theatrical project while enjoying the breathtaking beauty of Saint-Tropez, on the French Riviera.

In this Zoom interview from her home in Paris, Suru discusses the film, its intentions and its message, and talks about the process of dreaming up – and realizing – the story of a creative collaboration against one of the world’s most beautiful backdrops.
