About this film

Synopsis

Anaelle is 18 years old. In a few days, she leaves for England to attend university. Her belongings are scattered on her bedroom floor: the styles of her school years, holiday mementos, sociology textbooks. She wishes she could take it all. Packing the contents of her life, Anaelle laughs, cries, yells, and lights up a cigarette. She reflects on the past and worries about the future: what she packs in her suitcase connects the two.
