A Feature film by Laetitia Masson

    Boulogne-sur-Mer. One morning, 26-year-old Alice, a worker in a fish cannery, loses her job. She tells herself that it's time to make a fresh start, but doing what? Stay here and rot or get a real life somewhere else? In Lyons, 27-year-old Bruno, a construction worker, is feeling down and lonely. He hangs out with a pal, the night-porter at the Ideal Hotel. One evening, he sees a young woman at the bar... It's Alice.

    "The first time we met, her singularity was what I liked about her : her more than average height, her direct, slightly haughty stare, the proud face, her breasts below her frail shoulders, her skin-tone... Then, at one point, all that scared me... Perhaps it was too much for the character of a working-class girl, too much charm, too much grace, too much perfection ! Then we worked and worked and worked some more. And that's when I discovered her generosity, humanity, wounds, the necessary humility, strength of will, fears and the humour used to dispel them... And then I knew no one else would be better in the part."
