After breaking up with his girlfriend and quitting his job, Simon went back to his small hometown in the countryside where he met with his old friend, Julien. The two unemployed men in their early thirties decide to realize an old teenage dream: to hit the road on an adventurous journey living off seasonal jobs. They buy a mobile home, but their departure is cut off by an unexpected event. Stuck in their own village, their road trip still takes place, leading them to a crossroad where they will take different paths…

Despite the fact that he just realized his first full-length feature, François Pirot is already a well-established film author. He co-wrote Joachim Lafosse’ s “Élève libre” and “Private Property”. Both the critics and the general public agree on the quality of the script. Pirot has already directed many short-length features including “Retraite”, which received many prestigious awards (Grand Prix at the Festival Le court en dit long 2005, Grand Prix for best first European short-length feature at the Festival Premiers Plans d’Angers 2006) and aired on television on Arte. Today, Tarantula is proud to be producing works from this promising author.
