The summer and all the rest

When at the end of the summer the last ferries with tourists leave and most of young Marc-Antoine’s friends have left for the mainland to study or to work, he and his friend Mickael remain behind on the deserted island. Mickael is full of plans to leave, but is Marc-Antoine able to escape his solidified routine?
