Book Tickets
In a picturesque French village, a poet dreams of his father’s homeland. Listening to recordings of his father’s voice, he longs for a place he never really knew.

At first glance, nothing seems to be missing in the life of painter and poet Patrick Navaï, his wife Sylvie, or their musician son Yvan. They live in a medieval village near a forest in France. Their daily routine comprises painting, playing music, reading poetry and long family walks into the green hills that surround their home. However, an unfulfilled desire for belonging affects every aspect of Patrick’s life.
