Synopsis:
Set in a quiet, rural village in France which becomes saturated with anxiety when a tragic accident results in the death of a local teenage boy, One Day In Summer presents itself as a rites of passage for an ensemble of characters caught up in the unassuming narrative of this coming of age story. The heat-drenched summer landscape acquires a sinister and brooding aspect as everyone looks for someone to blame. Amidst this tense dissection of a small community's secrets the film casts a restrained yet penetrating gaze upon the life-changing summer of a teenage boy. After the death of his best friend, Sebastien has to come to terms with conflicting feelings towards him.
His unspoken longing and sexual awakening are cut short by the freak accident that robs him of his friendship and their last summer together before university. With a heady mix of unrequited feelings and resentment complicated by past bereavements and class difference Sebastien's inner turmoil is sharply contrasted against the shimmering heat and beautiful countryside of France. Sebastien's confusion is further complicated by the admiring advances if the son of the town's mayor who Sebastien blames for the death of his friend.
