genre: fiction

(Sweden, France / 2022 / 100’)

A young filmmaker returns to the village where she was born – a little town in the north of France – to investigate a strange story about a terrorist threat. She starts with members of her own family, and doesn’t have to go much further. The misunderstanding – as it turns out to be – shows above all how alarmist news and political machinations in certain geographical environments can take on a life of their own and create “parallel” realities.
