Un invincible été

Invincible Summer
A hot summer evening. Home alone by the pool, 16-year-old Clément is bored to death. Determined to lose his virginity, he swipes through guys’ profiles on Grindr, lies about his age, and arranges to hook up with 24-year-old Naël. As the time draws near, Clément rushes things. But it is only through the discovery of a body that is completely different from Naël’s that Clément truly grows up.
