Overview

Quand Tu Descendras du Ciel director Eric Guirado follows up his feature filmmaking debut with this drama about a grocer's son who returns to the village where he was born in order to take over his father's business. Ten years ago, Antione Nicolas Cazalé left his family behind and moved to the big city. Now, after discovering that his father Daniel Duval has suffered a heart attack and that the family grocery store will soon be forced to shut down, Antoine heads back to the French mountain town at the behest of his brother François Stéphan Guérin-Tillié. It seems that few folks save for his mother Jeanne Goupil are happy to see Antoine return, though the meandering 30-year-old has brought city friend Claire Clotilde Hesme along to keep him company during his stay in the country. Though it remains to be seen whether Antoine and Claire will ever become anything more than friends, the free-spirited sprite is more than happy to help out when it comes to making the rounds with the mobile store that services the local villages.
