Summertime. A cruising spot for men, tucked away on the shores of a lake. Franck falls in love with Michel. An attractive, potent and lethally dangerous man. Franck knows this, but wants to live out his passion anyway.

In southern France, Franck frequents his local cruising spot each day; sunbathing, swimming and admiring the bronzed male bodies. Late one night he witnesses an act of violence and finds himself drawn into an enticing web of danger that could put his life in jeopardy. Winner of both the Queer Palm and Best Director at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, Guiraudie’s meditation on love, sex and murderous desire is a deeply unconventional thriller distinguished by a hypnotic tranquility. With hardcore abandon, Guiraudie transforms his cruising ground into a verdant labyrinth of perilous possibility, rife with voyeuristic pleasures. But beneath this surface of carefree hedonism lies a shrewd critique on the dangers of anonymous encounters and the illicit thrills of risk-taking.
