The surface of characters, the question of their identity. But also the surface of the world, the appearance of reality and the question of the sustainability of these appearances…
One autumn morning, a young woman disguised as a man lands at the bottom of a garden of a beautiful
property. This young woman is the hidden child of the deceased owner, an architect / artist who also has an “official” wife and child living in the property. The illegitimate child learns the identity of her father shortly after his death and comes incognito to discover who this other family is and why his father had found it necessary to conceal her existence to this family. The Girl From the Water takes place almost entirely in a modernist villa near a cliff and a large lake in the late 80s, probably somewhere in California. Between ambiguous human relationships and ambivalent identities, the story offers a mix of genres, between the camera and story-adventure drama.
