On a chilly fall evening, three teenagers break curfew to party in a wooded area on the outskirts of their neighbourhood. But the forest quickly becomes a scene for bad luck even more contagious than Covid for this rebellious trio. Between the threat of a hefty fine, a cumbersome little brother who sows trouble and the incriminating discovery of a corpse, Thomas, Gabrielle and Noée will have to decide whether they prefer to flee the consequences of their actions or take advantage of the chaos, while they're at it. As the saying goes, when life gives you a flaming corpse, bring out the marshmallows!
