One spring weekend on the Atlantic coast, two pensioners on their way to their second home — a maisonette no bigger than a postage stamp — cross paths with a couple of punks whose vacation residence is a house drawn in the sand. At the hotel, the lives of both couples are turned upside down by a lost kite. It is a weekend marked by the meeting of destinies, social classes, generations, and feelings of grief and of joy. A real weekend by the sea.
