Synopsis
Brittany, France, in the 80s. François Mitterrand has just been elected president and post-punk music fills the airwaves. Philippe and his brother broadcast their own pirate radio station from their father’s home, but their love for the same girl and compulsory military service soon comes between them. Pitched between rural life and the cosmopolitan excitement evoked by the music of youth, Cardona’s debut is a striking and nostalgic coming-of-age tale – perfect for audiophiles of the analogue persuasion.
