A man wakes up in the middle of the night, alone in a public bus at the edge of a forest. He gets off the bus and disappears. From now on Lucette, his wife, lives in uncertainty and fear. Louis is employed in the insurance company that the missing man had worked for. He lives in a hotel which is the workplace of Chantal, who dreams of another life. Director Stéphane Lafleur says of his bittersweet black comedy: “The figures in ‘Continental’ are alone, but they are interconnected.”
