Jeanne is 27, comes from a good background and is about to get married in France. Nino is just 17 and belongs to the marginalized Sinti and Roma community. What they have in common is their love. They get to know each other in Romania, where Jeanne wants to celebrate her bachelorette party with her friends. Their love takes time - time to observe, listen, empathize. But their admitted affection for each other reveals what they secretly felt for a long time: the irrepressible desire to free themselves. What follows is a seemingly never-ending summer. As an actress, Noémie Merlant is already being hailed as France‘s new superstar. Now she is delivering this floating, directorial debut filled with sparkling screen energy. Her talent seems inexhaustible.
