Every August 15th, young Paul and his family spend part of their summer holiday having a big picnic on Callot Island. The family camcorder passes from hand to hand, capturing the good vibes and the noises of the summer whilst the sun beats down and the smell of suncream wafts through the air. However, this year, 1996, they accidentally get caught out by the rising tide and find the only route off the island blocked by the ocean. With their only option to wait until morning and tensions rising, Paul decides to go exploring and finds himself in a life changing situation. Gorgeously hand-drawn, this nostalgic animation explores memory and transition whilst also being an excellent way to introduce basic French to young learners.
