2 Autumns 3 Winters

by Sébastien Betbeder

Synopsis

At the age of 33, Arman decides it’s time to change his life. To begin, one Saturday he goes jogging in a park.

As he turns a corner, he bumps into Amélie. The first meeting is a shock ; the second will be like a stab in the heart.

Benjamin is Arman’s best friend. One evening he collapses and falls over into a hedgegrow. Doctors diagnose a stroke.

Between two autumns and three winters, the lives of Amélie, Arman and Benjamin intermingle and are filled with meetings, accidents, love stories and memories.
