Synopsis / Plot
Twenty-two-year-old Thomas can’t kick his drug habit. His last chance is a community of young men from different countries and social backgrounds who also want to overcome their addictions and are living together in a remote house in the French mountains. Supervised by a Catholic priest, their days revolve around regular prayer, solidarity and hard labour in the fields. Not everyone manages to submit themselves to this monastic existence. For Thomas too, every day is a struggle, but he is helped by the unreserved sense of unity and friendship he encounters, as well as his acquaintance with a girl who lives nearby. Gradually, Thomas begins to give his new life a chance – could this be the way forward?
