Celine is a magician and mythomaniac. Julie is a librarian lost in her memories of childhood. They meet by chance, strike up a friendship, confide in each other, and, fleeing reality, move to an old, calm house where they start imagining a whole other incredible existence full of adventures. They each get caught up in their own game, and, willingly slipping away from reality, invent fantasies nourished by dreams, memories and desires. Their love of life, fantasy and adventure spurs them to set sail. Locarno IFF | Special Prize of the Jury 1974
