When the alarm goes off for the exercise, he has to face his fear and his desire for Marthe.

    A touching tale about the uncertainties of childhood, Daniel injects poetry into realism and employs simple looks and small gestures to capture the strength of the emotions that often manifest in the unsure minds of young adults.
