Jeanne (Noémie Merlant, Portrait of a Lady on Fire) lives with her mother and works by night at an amusement park collecting rubbish. She struggles to make meaningful connections with others, until a new resident appears at the park. He’s popular, tall, strong and lights a fire within Jeanne. He also happens to be the latest thrill ride to join the carnival. As a deep relationship develops between Jeanne and the ride, Jeanne’s family and friends struggle to understand the unconventional love story. 

In her fable-like directorial debut, writer-director Zoé Wittock brings blissful energy and surrealistic style to this unique and emotional roller-coaster.
