Storyline:
Unlike most of her friends, Élise stayed in the city this summer to prepare for her university exam. As she struggles to concentrate under the August sun, she is abruptly interrupted by a foreigner who claims that she is sitting on his place. Although she does not know it, this brief encounter transforms the endless repetition of the slow summer days, into something more transcendent and memorable than the usual history lesson.
