Bastien and Chloé spend their summer vacation with their families at the lake in Quebec. The shy 13-year-old Bastien and his family are staying at a friend’s cottage, where Bastien meets the bold 16-year-old Chloé. She is a fan of folklore and local legends and tells Bastien a ghost is haunting the nearby lake. Despite the age gap between them, the two teenagers form a firm bond. Being ready to overcome his worst fears to earn a place in Chloé’s heart, the holiday becomes a turbulent pivotal moment for the young boy.
