mauvais genre

queer fringe romance

Somewhere in the French countryside, Léto is stuck in a modest industrial suburban town. Down tower blocks, a bunch of broke and bully thugs rule over the wasteland he crosses everyday to pick up his moped before work. However one day, this ambient hostility turns into the overwhelming charm of an unexpected encounter... Léto will thus draw his emancipation from Hamza, an enigmatic ice rink employee just as outsider as him. Will these lone wolves run away from such a mutual desire?
