Synopsis: Thomas and Marianne, a feuding couple whose relationship has hit a wall, decide to spend a weekend at Thomas' uncle's lakeside cottage. This is their last chance to save their relationship, which has been jeopardized by Marianne's meaningless flirtations and Thomas' uncontrollable jealousy. As they arrive, a restless yet charming neighbor welcomes them into their house and, realizing that Thomas' uncle and girlfriend will not be showing up for days, suggests they share the dinner he has prepared. The drunken night that follows - with this man, who might not be who he seems to be, pushing his charms on Marianne - leads to a weekend of blurred emotions and events, where loyalties, guilt and a shared secret will test the young couple's ability to survive.

The table's not in such great shape.

Yeah, you climbed up on it yesterday.

Don't you remember?

So that's what's on your mind!

I was just fooling around, OK?

- Did it bother you?

- Yes.

But apparently it shouldn't have.

I'm not overreacting,

other people told me, too.

Yesterday, Mike said to me:

"This doesn't bother you?"

Don't you see yourself?

What does Mike have to do with this?

The door's open.

Why do you think he didn't leave

until 3:
00 a.m.?

- Come on, he knows...

- Why did he stay?

Don't you think he had a huge hard-on?

Maybe he just likes to have fun!

Aude was just next to us!

I never would've done anything

in front of everyone!

You're always imagining things!

I had fun, nothing happened.

Yeah, I know you had fun.

Don't worry!

I saw that you were having fun.

It was good to have everyone together.

Your mom was there.

It was a really nice dinner.

It was a lot of fun.

I'm sure you didn't call

to talk about your mom.

What's up?

I was wondering

if I could borrow your cottage.

Does this weekend work for you?

Yeah, this weekend's fine.

I was thinking of going up

with Hlne, but...

OK, well, I don't want

to ruin your plans.

I promised you could,

and a promise is a promise.

- You sure you don't mind?

- No problem at all.

You'll have to talk to the neighbour.

He has a spare set of keys.

I'll give you his number.

- What's his name?

- Benot, but you can call him Ben.

- I can call him Ben?

- For sure.

Hi, this is Benot Gignac.

I'm not available right now.

Leave a message

and I'll get right back to you.

Hello, Benot.

It's Thomas Legault,

Michel Legault's nephew.

I'm calling because he's lending me

his cottage this weekend,

and he told me to call you

to get the keys.

So, give me a call back.

My number is 585...


- The voicemail box of...

- Benot Gignac.

...is full.

To leave a callback number--

I know what you're thinking, but...

- No expectations, OK?

- No, exactly.

We'll see how things go.

What is there to do at the cottage?

There are some trails.

We'll go for walks, wow!


There's a fire pit.


There's a nice lake.

You'll like the lake.

- Right by the cottage?

- Yeah, it has lake access.

There are a couple of boats, too.

Are you going to swim?

We'll see.

I brought my bathing suit.

You're just jealous!

Not of me,

but of the things you can't do!

Oh, is that it?

You think being faithful

is silly, right?

I'm not saying that! It's just...

You badger me, you question me,

and it's infuriating!

But you don't see yourself!

What do I do that you don't do?

You do it on purpose.

I do it on purpose.

OK, because...

You're nave.

Have you ever wanted to kiss

another girl?


Did you do it?

Get out.

We were almost there.

Damn it...

What do we do?

We're not far.

What are you doing?

I'm trying to reach the neighbour.


Because he has the keys.

What keys?

The keys to the cottage.

He doesn't have the keys.

I'm not even surprised.

I don't believe this.

I'm not moving anymore.

This is it!

That's weird!

They keys are in the lock.


I'm Michel's nephew, the owner's nephew.

You came up with Michel?

No, Michel's not here.

He lent us the cottage for the weekend.

The key was in the door, so we came in.

Yeah, that's my key.

OK, so you're...


The neighbour, yes.

Hi! I was supposed to pick up

the key at your place.

I called several times,

but there was no answer.

No, I wasn't at my cottage.

So, this is my key?

- Right?

- Yeah.

It's strange, I didn't hear you pull up.

No, we... Hang on, I'll close the door.
