Montreal, 1999. Like every sunday, a modest Pakistani immigrant family picnics in a dead-end next to the Airport, closely watching planes land. On this special day where the Legendary Concord is expected - a rare treat in town- Akram (17 years old), the eldest son of 3 kids, deeply in his teenage crisis, decides to take off to live his own life, creating a commotion in the family.
Stéphane MoukarzelBorn in Côte d'Ivoire to Lebanese parents, graduated in Communications at Concordia University in Montreal. Author of several short films including Wild Blow (2010) which won several awards and U-Turn (2011). His favorite themes are passage of time, the obsession of missteps, the need to let go and the search for identity in an alienated and individualistic society. He is also concerned about the bubble concept and space. He particularly likes a humanist cinema in which absurd dramas and intimate meet. If his characters are always engaging, they operate in a world sometimes dark, sometimes light and often irreverent.
