SYNOPSIS

Thibaut is the son of a farmer from Ardèche. He plays, fly-fishes, works in the field or chats with his friend, Ophelie, about all sorts of things, from bees to eBay. But more than everything else, he gradually shapes his own way of seeing life, as he prepares to step out of childhood.

Children understand what is happening with their lives and others’ worlds. And that understanding often shapes their future lives. A tranquil film set against the bucolic bliss of the Ardèches.
