Description:LA QUARANTAINE is the story of a group of friends who meet again after being apart for thirty years. The film does not go into detail about their personal lives, but uses the characters to portray the fundamental problems faced by all men and women as they age. Using situations that look at family, love, fidelity, homosexuality and professional success, the bottom line seems to be that what matters the most to an adult is their recollection of their childhood.
