SYNOPSIS

A young and ambitious boy, Elie earns his money shovelling snow at the house of a peculiar old man, Enzo. One night, his mother surprises him while he’s counting his money. The discovery of his income upsets her much more than it should in normal circumstances. Without hesitation, she decides to return the money to Enzo. She threatens to call the police if he continues to hire her son. Little does she know, this action will spark her son’s criminal life. Anchored in a Québécois winter, When It Falls is a short film somewhere between Film Noir and Coming of Age genres.

ABOUT THE FILM

Led by long-time collaborators Romain Dumont and Antoine Ryan, this film was produced against all kinds of obstacles, thanks very much in part to a very strong cast and a devoted team. Creating a snow storm on a spring day was just one of the many challenges stubbornly overcome by the filmmakers who put their name on this ode to rebellion. .
