The House by the Sea

NB: TICKETING HANDLED BY RESPECTIVE VENUES

The portrait of three later-life siblings finding unexpected renewal in their childhood home.

By a little bay near Marseille lies a picturesque villa owned by an old man.

His three children have gathered by his side for his last days. It is time for them to weigh up what they have inherited from their father’s ideals and the community spirit he created in this magical place. The arrival, of a group of boat people at a nearby cove will throw these moments of reflection into turmoil.
