One morning, forty-five year old Louise is suddenly unable to step out of her car. Sweats, anxieties, and palpitations suggest that she is having an inexplicable panic attack. She is frozen in place and simply cannot set foot outside. It will surely pass, except it doesn’t. Freaked out, she starts hysterically driving around with no goal other than keep driving until she runs out of gas. Once at the service station, twenty-year-old Paul breaks into her car with one obsession: to drive to the ocean and “if she doesn’t like it, she can just get the hell out,” except she really can’t. And so they begin their journey. He thinks she’s crazy, she thinks he’s a jerk. Stuck together, the unlikely duo embarks on a hilarious road trip bursting with comic energy! The film is part of the “Young French Cinema” series presented annually by French film distributor Unifrance and Villa Albertine, an artist residency program.
