Synopsis

Today is the last day of Satché's life. He wakes up in perfect health, but is aware that he will die overnight. He is greeted by his family and friends, who also recognise the inevitability of Satché's demise. They gather, and in a fascinating and revealing ritual, take turns praising Satché, and then pointing out his flaws. He pays a visit to his first love, hangs out with his old friends, attends a civic reception in his honour, and spends time with his wife and children. And the question that hovers over the day is: why did Satché return from America, where he could have had a future? With his third feature, after L'AFRANCE and ANDALUCIA, Alain Gomis uses magical realism and striking imagery to construct an unconventional meditation on migration.
