Statu Quo

Sarah and Adele are wrapping up their high school years in a town that’s a little too quiet. For Adele, the future is clear, while Sarah just can’t seem to find her way. What kind of life is available to her in a society that’s so… so… boring? Until she meets Simon, that is, a military brat who confronts her to start documenting the nothingness of her town. An exercise that will unveil facets of where she comes from and what she is.
