Together with her son, Elliot (Lawther) they have come to their holiday home in the French countryside where they are getting ready to pack up and sell the house. Whilst on the trip, Elliot meets the handsome French bad boy, Clement (Brossard) and he begins to work through the dawning of his own sexuality and alienation from his mother. Peccadillo Pictures.
