There are no whales in France

In this filmic essay set in a sleepy holiday village in the North of France, the filmmaker takes the viewer on her personal search for peace and quietness. She uses the camera as a tool to try and form an understanding of her surroundings. Her walks are accompanied by a dialogue between the filmmaker and an actress, reflecting on hope, changes, borders and film.
