Delving into the love lives of two half siblings, Charlotte and Guillaume as they navigate new terrains. Switching between University student Charlotte as she embarks on her first serious relationship that has her thrown through a loop when her lover proposes they explore an open relationship. Charlotte finds herself questioning everything she understands about love, lust, and monogamy. Meanwhile 16-year-old Guillaume attends an all boys boarding school where he is discovering his feelings towards his best friend are changing and becoming romantic. In dealing with these new feelings he often buries himself in teen angst and compensates with humour when he is with his classmates. Director Philippe Lesage conveys the difficulties queer youth face atop of the usual coming-of-age strife, while also exploring how sexuality and relationships are being explored in non traditional ways and within less rigid structures amongst youth.
