Newlywed musicians Bertie and Fred recently moved from New Orleans to the sun-drenched countryside of Southern France. While a rotating cast of neighbors and musicians frequently drop by for boozy dinners and summer parties, Bertie’s nagging sense of displacement leaves singing less fulfilling, even as her band’s multi-country tour looms on the horizon. Enter Lane, an easy charmer and Bertie’s former polyamorous lover. The surprise visit stirs up old memories, passions, and new complications in this easygoing romp from budding director Marion Hill.

Closed captioning will be available for this film.
