A village with 200 inhabitants, the last outpost of civilisation in Northern Canada, where the streets lead into endless expanses of snow. In this icy moonscape, Lucy and Roman, both of whom are on the run from their previous life, fall in love. But the ghosts of the past pursue them to the end of the world. Lucy sees no way out other than to keep on running or burn up inside. Together, the lovers decide to leave it all behind and head out into the wilderness – in the hope that nature will treat them better than civilisation has. Two Lovers and a Bear is a hypnotic love story with absurd, funny moments which was shown at Cannes in the series La Quinzaine des Réalisateurs.
