A compelling, tragic love story loosely based on the true story of filmmaker Jean Vigo and his wife, Lydu. Jean and Lydu met in the early 1930s, in a tuberculosis sanatorium in the Pyrenees. Love slowly grows between them, becoming a liberating force that enables them to combat the illness, live for the moment, defy misfortune and embrace life despite adversity.
