7 Minutes.

The film takes place in Toulouse and tells the story of Jean, a 55 year-old policeman who discovers his son, Maxime, and his son’s boyfriend hanged in a hotel room. The autopsy shows that he died from an overdose of GHB, just seven minutes after his boyfriend. During an evening organized by Maxime’s friends, Jean discovers club BISOU, where his son used to frequent. He meets Fabien. Trying to know more about what happened, Jean goes to the club several times over and is quickly welcomed by the Bisouers. When Fabien becomes attached to him and little by little, Jean mixes his mourning with the desire to discover his son’s world.
