It's summer. A teenage boy and girl are on their first date in a park. Shy at first, they grow closer as they roam, and gradually fall in love. But as the sun goes down, it is time to part and the night begins. The minimalist, tender romance slowly develops from a subtle observation of the birth of a relationship into a mystery with dreamy elements. The film premiered in the ACID section at the Cannes IFF.
