Synopsis

Two young women meet by chance at a seaside hotel, engrossed by a bucolic atmosphere; one is an employee, the other a guest. Both have the hotel as a refuge. The film traces an extremely light and delicate atmosphere through in its shots, sequences, cuts, colors, and most of all in the interaction between the two characters, in their gestures as they seek in that place the freedom to breathe. A common yearning which, when shared, can potentially awaken new desires. (M. M)
