Though Alex is very young, he is already married and has children. He and his wife work in a supermarket and they get by with the money they earn though suffering economic strain and y tension. Many of these tensions are a result of the state of eternal adolescence in which en el que Alex lives: he is more devoted to his friends, videogames, races and tuning his Honda Civic than facing his family responsibilities. An unexpected accident will change this psychological and emotional scenario, making guilty feelings appear in his life. Sahr’s debut film tries to get closer to Dostoyevsky than to Fast and furious.

After failing to enter Femis twice, Christophe Sahr decided to seek education from within the industry and started working as a production assistant. He gathered experience year after year, and gradually he got closer to cinematic creation. He made his dream come true when became Jean-Marc Moutou director’s assistant in Violence des échanges en milieu tempéré (2003). He was granted later the longed access to Femis, which script writing workshop saw him working on his debut behind the camera, Voie Rapide.
