Hey, you.

- Hi.

- Hi. Hold on a sec.

Yeah, sure.

- Here.

- I'll take care of it.

- Are you going out?

- Oh, just for one drink.

What about the storage park tomorrow?

I'll go. I'll go.

- How are you?

- Fine.

Let's go. Bye.

Tell me how it ends later.

- We'll see about that.

- Come on.


Yeah, I'm coming.

Hold on. Wait for me.

- Whoa!

- Wait, wait.


Hold on! You're going too fast.

- Stop!

- Come on!

Hold on.

Let's go, let's go!

Wait, watch out!

- Look out!

- There's a balance problem.

- Watch out.

- You have a balancing problem.

Hey, watch out. Don't be an ass.

Are you ok?

Are you ok?

Oh, f***.

Mom, you can't do this.

This isn't possible.

You'll be tired tomorrow.

- I know.

- It's always the same thing.

You know, but...

Go to bed, Mom.

Go to bed.

I'll hem your pants.

You'll do what?

I'm going to hem your pants.

- But Mom...

- Quiet! People are sleeping!

Mom, you can't hem my pants. It's 5 am.

I'm awake now.

Yeah, but... I'm going to bed now.



- How are you?

- Fine.

My mom won't stop talking

about you. It's such a pain.

- How have you been?

- Fine.

Yes, I'm fine. How about you?

This is doing me a lot of good.

I mean being out

here in the countryside...


I know about my furniture

at your place, but...

I need to find a van,

so I can pick it all up.

- That's ok.

- I just need to find the time.

I'll come. I'll come.

- Let's walk a bit.

- I'm going to go, actually.


Sylvie, Sylvie!

I don't know why I came.

- I'm stupid.

- No, I'm happy to see you.

You're not. You're distant.

I'm distant...

That's because things have

changed. I can't just hold you.

I'm not asking you to, but...

You just left. We didn't even try.

We did try plenty of times.

We tried plenty of times.

I don't know how many times we split up.

Each time we got back together,

but we never managed to...

I think that if we were

meant to be together,

it wouldn't have been so difficult.

Plus, I just don't think I'm

cut out for a relationship.


I've missed you, too, Caroline.

Can I give you a kiss?

Yes, please do.

How are you, Julien?

Fine, fine.

I was just taking a short break.

How have you decided to set it up?

Remember I initially

wanted to extend that wall.

Instead, I'll break the wall,

so that I can create a big loft

with a spiral staircase

to go upstairs.

Have you inquired about the roof?

No, not yet.

One thing at a time, you know.

Wouldn't that be nice?

Oh yeah, it could be nice.

It could be nice.

There's soup and charcuterie.

For tonight, will it be all right?

It's a shame to stop

now that you've started.

But I won't be gone long.

I'll be back tomorrow.

Well then, see you tomorrow.

See you tomorrow.

Remember our summer tour?

We only had three dates.

- It was a small tour.

- Yes, a small one.

Well, we left...

and Vincent came to see us in one town.

He was completely drunk.

He got on stage and

vomited on a guy in front.

Oh yeah. Wasn't it the mayor?

Oh yeah!


I held such a grudge against

you guys for chickening out.

We were all going to go

together after our studies,

but we never talked about it again.

You had all settled down,

so it was over.

That said, if we had gone,

I would've had to come home quickly.

Why don't we leave now?

Why don't we just hit the road in a van?

No kidding.

We'll buy something we can sleep in.

And we'll just leave.

When we need a bit of money...

we'll stop for seasonal work.

Something concrete, physical,

outdoors in nature.

When we've had enough...

When we've had enough,

we leave again...

and travel. We'll travel.

Can you imagine it?

Most people dream of doing it,

but can't. They're stuck.

We're lucky to have

nothing holding us back,

but we don't even take advantage of it.

"Nothing holding us back"...

Your dad is fine now.

He's fully recovered.

Yes. Well, normally.

Plus, I started working on the barn.

Honestly, Julien...

I don't know about

this whole barn thing.

Do you realize

how much work it'll take?

It'll take at least three years

and you'll be doing it all alone.

Moscow! There it is!

Wait, wait, wait.

Where's Saint Petersburg?

If we want to go there,

we'll have to go before Moscow.

So, we'll have to go through...


Isn't Iceland just around there?

I heard it's amazing.

Iceland's far away.

In that case, we'd be going

to Greenland or something.


Hold on, let's take a look.

- It's beautiful.

- Yes.

You're already back?

What are you doing?

Nothing, just looking.

I'll make you coffee.

Thank you, Luc.

Thanks, Dad.

Oh! Look at Sardinia too.

- I saw a TV documentary on it.

- You're crazy.

- It looked amazing.

- It's far.

- Let's look at it. Go down.

- I'm going.


When would you be leaving?

I don't know.

Soon. Once we get everything ready.


I thought the barn was important to you.

Come on, Dad.

It's too much. It'll take

me at least three years.

I'm all alone.

But you wanted to do it.

- You're being influenced, aren't you?

- Of course not.

Since he's come back,

something's been wrong.



You're well now, aren't you?

I'll be able to work

and earn a living...

and travel at the same time.

Isn't that great?


There are no windows.

Yes, I...

That one costs 6,000.

Not a cheap buy.

And as you can see, it's not very roomy.
