Set in the Great North, near the North Pole, in a modern town where about two hundred souls live precariously in minus fifty weather, and where roads lead to nowhere but the endless white. In that town, Lucy and Roman are in love and try to give meaning to their lives. But tragedies in Lucy’s past force her to escape the ghost that haunts her. In a week, she will be gone. Roman can’t follow her to the South or all Hell will break loose, and he can’t deal with Lucy’s departure… Together, they will make a leap for life, a leap for inner peace. That adventure, which seemed simple and safe, turns into a real journey, a quest, a struggle for life. Two Lovers and a Bear was selected to be screened in the Directors’ Fortnight section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
