Leïlais 16. She wakes up late, like any other morning. Except that today, no one is here to tell her to get moving. Where are her parents? She gets on her bike and rides through the neighborhood: it's all empty. Everybody has disappeared. Thinking she's the sole survivor of an unexplained disaster, she eventually crosses ways with four other teenagers: Dodji, Yvan, Camille and Terry. Together they will try to understand what has happened and to learn to survive in a world that has become hostile... But are they really alone?

About the Director
I'm a big fan of fantasy, sci-fi and horror. Unfortunately these genres are hard to find in French films today. I directed a horror movie, ILS, in 2006. At that time, there were still some bold and courageous producers willing to embark on this kind of adventure. With a tiny budget, the movie did rather well, selling more than 250,000 tickets. A small wave of genre films (known as the French Fright) followed, but by 2010 it was dead because it rather failed commercially.It's a shame because France is as fond of this kind of movie as the next country.They just have a hard time projecting themselves into such universes within a French context and with French actors.
