The Furlong men have unusual powers. Grandpa goes blind when he thinks of sex, Dad fries electronics when he's afraid... but young James has a far more fearsome power. After losing everyone he loves, he flees to the woods to live alone. But when he's discovered by a beautiful teenage cancer patient, their romance leads James on a journey back to civilization. Agnès Merlet directs this intense and passionate film of young, eternal love and about learning to live with the curses—and blessings—we sometimes inherit. Production companies: Octagon Films, Fidelite Films, Filmgate Films
