Jean Denizot | France | 2013 | 93 min. | V.O French subtitled in Spanish and English

Sylvain and Pierre, 16 and 18 years old, who lead an isolated life in the country with their father Yves, live in constant flight. Eleven years before, Yves took them without their mother’s permission –in the eyes of the law, he kidnapped them- and since then he has been on the run from justice. But late adolescence is an age of awakenings and of desires for independence that are hard to cope with. The two boys start to rebel against their situation which, while it is happy and filled with love, keeps them isolated from others of their age. Pierre, the elder, runs away so he can live his own life, while Sylvain, tied to his father, sets out with him on a raft journey downriver, in the style of Huckleberry Finn. On this trip he finds his first love, comes into contact again with urban life and its contrasts with his life until now in the country, and for the first time he takes control of his destiny.
