4 PM – A fantastic Woman
Marina and Orlando are in love and planning for the future. Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer. Orlando is 20 years older than her, and owns a printing company. After celebrating Marina’s birthday one evening, Orlando falls seriously ill. Marina rushes him to the emergency room, but he passes away just after arriving at the hospital. Instead of being able to mourn her lover, suddenly Marina is treated with suspicion. The doctors and Orlando’s family don’t trust her. A woman detective investigates Marina to see if she was involved in his death. Orlando’s ex-wife forbids her from attending the funeral. And to make matters worse, Orlando’s son threatens to throw Marina out of the flat she shared with Orlando. Marina is a trans woman and for most of Orlando’s family, her sexual identity is an aberration, a perversion. So Marina struggles for the right to be herself. She battles the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now – a complex, strong, forthright and fantastic woman.

6 PM – Back to Burgundy
Jean left his family and his native Burgandy ten years ago to tour the world. When learning of his father’s imminent death, he returns to his childhood home. There he reconnects with his sister Juliette and his brother Jérémie. Their father dies just before the beginning of grape picking time.

Over the period of a year, according to the rhythm of the seasons that follow one after the other, these three young adults will rediscover or reinvent their fraternal relationship, blossoming and maturing at the same time as the wine they make.
