De Rouille et d'Os (Rust and Bone) playing at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17





Ali suddenly finds himself in charge of Sam, his 5 years old
son that he barely knows. Penniless and without friends, he leaves the north of
France to seek shelter at his sister’s in Antibes. Even though she and her
husband do not have much money, they make a room for them in their garage and
take care of Sam.

Ali finds work as a bouncer at a local nightclub. After diffusing a fight one
evening, he meets Stephanie a beautiful, self-confident woman. He takes her
home and leaves her his number. But she is a princess and he is a poor fellow.

Stephanie is a killer whale trainer at the local Marineland. After a terrible
accident one day, Ali gets an unexpected phone call from Stephanie. 

When he sees her again she is crammed into a wheelchair. She has lost both her
legs and her dreams.

Ali will share genuine moments with her, without pity, and help her to live
