Castle to Castle
Spring 2017. During the French presidential election, 25-year-old Pierre rents a room from 75-year-old Francine, who is confined to a wheelchair. Together they observe the electoral circus, at once confused and disorientated, and despite the differences in their political opinions and social backgrounds, they manage to confide in each other.
