GOODBYE LULU

Elodie visits her grandfather Lucien, a 91-year-old resident of a nursing home. He welcomes her warmly, but she came up with a very specific question, to which she requires an answer: Why did he abuse her 31 years ago? Between denials, loss of memory and guilty doubt, Lucien will, at the end of his life, have to explore his past and its gray areas.
