Beatrice (Stevenson) and her teenage son Elliot (Lawther) spend a week packing up the contents of their remote holiday house in the South of France. Fifteen-year-old Elliot wrestles with his burgeoning sexuality while she in turn confronts the end of her marriage to his father. When an enigmatic local boy quietly enters their lives, mother and son are led to confront each other and their awakening desires.

 

A delicate character drama and a eulogy to love.
