Bel age (France)
Claire, 17, struggles between her involvement in swimming contests and her first love feelings. Everything is synonym of conflict and quest for self-discovery for this orphan girl who lives alone at her grandfather’s, Maurice, a mysterious composer she keeps avoiding. Proud, rebellious, solitary, they belong to two generations that both reject and attract each other, two distant but a lot alike characters. One looks forward, the other is tormented by his memories.
