Marie and the Misfits

by Sébastien Betbeder

Synopsis

An alternative love triangle swinging between fiction and literature.

Marie is an alluring young woman who lacks self confidence. When she leaves Antoine – a melancholic writer, she meets with Simeon, a jobless journalist. Yet she prefers to let fate decide for her future.
Antoine and Simeon become obsessed by an elusive Marie.

This is a story of desperate souls between Paris and an island in Brittany.
It’s also a story about a story being written.
