On his 25th birthday, Tom sits blindfolded in a room of women. By tradition, he must choose a mate based on voice alone. He then has 30 days to go into the world and find her. Unbeknownst to Tom, if he cannot locate her within that time, she is then brought to him. Terrified of failure, Tom seeks the aid of a counselor, who urges Tom to visualize her to aid his search. When he meets Lea, the soul voice he had chosen, she is unlike his created image and Tom believes there has been a terrible mistake. Facing pressure from both sets of parents, Lea and Tom move in together. Tom cannot surrender his fantasy of the woman he feels is his real soul voice. She begins appearing to Tom in increasingly uncontrollable visions, urging Tom to seek her. Defying society and family, and risking his own sanity, Tom sets out to find his true love. This haunting cautionary fable is filled with poetic imagery and heart-wrenching performances. How far will Tom go for a lover who may not exist? (In French with subtitles)- C.R.
