    A compelling, tragic love story loosely based on the true story of filmmaker Jean Vigo and his wife, Lydu. Jean and Lydu met in the early 1930s, in a tuberculosis sanatorium in the Pyrenees.

    About

    "Jean Vigo opened my eyes to the movies. By recounting my version of his story, I hope to repay my debt to him, and to encourage others to draw inspiration from his films."
