Vincent is in trouble. He's stolen drugs from the wrong people and has to get out of town for a while. Unexpectedly, for the first time in years he comes into contact with his brother Michel, the black sheep of the family who lives in the country. Michel leads an apparently normal life, chilling with friends and playing drums in a band. The brothers struggle to get closer, but the past hangs like a cloud of smog over the present – and it soon turns out that it's not only Vincent who's in a downward spiral. Made in a ghostly monochrome and with a unconventional narrative structure, the film draws the viewer in to a dystopian rural world where violence is an everyday phenomenon and where a glimmer of humanity nonetheless shines through the cracks.
