Corsica, in a small village.


Kids brighten the streets, teens mess around, grown-ups discuss the future while elders reflect on time passing by. Those who never left welcome back those who went abroad. Family and long time friends share together this precious moment in the mountains.


Under the burning sun and to the sound of rippling laughter, summer suspends time but doesn’t heal all wounds.
