About the Film

This debut feature film by director Stéphane Batut centers around Juste, who can see dead people. He wanders the streets of Paris, escorting the ghosts he encounters into the afterlife after collecting their last memory. But Juste’s liminal existence is thrown into jeopardy when a young woman named Agathe recognizes him, and he falls madly and illicitly in love with her.
