Running time:85 min 45 sec
Description:Mr. Jobin, an old man, flees the hospice to experience what he most holds dear: life itself. He has very little time left, and he wants to live out his final days at Lac de la Lune. But the people living in the area, where time seems to stand still, deny him this privilege. Some think he is insane, others venerate him as a sage. No one is able to understand the indifference of this man who, sitting in a vast field, waits for the end.
