Fraternity, a fantastic tale | Movie

directed by Caroline Guiela Nguyen

Once upon a time the story of a humanity that had lost half of itself and who decided to erect a place solely for the purpose of awaiting the return of the departed. In this place, women and men would constantly scan the sky, because it had all begun the day that the sun had disappeared behind the moon. They had come together to watch the eclipse, excited, unsuspecting. It lasted 4 minutes… 4 long minutes... ! The world was bathed in a sort of strange twilight… Right in the middle of the afternoon… And when at last it was over, and the sun had reappeared, the women, the men, their children… they all looked around them… and what they discovered shook them to the core… Half of their neighbours were no longer there. Half of all humanity had vanished…
