Synopsis:

Adoration is the story of Paul, a 14 years old lonely boy. His mother is a maid at the mental hospital. His father abandoned them, a long time ago.

A new patient arrived. Her name is Gloria, a young teenage girl of the same age, strange and fascinating. Paul will fall deeply in love with her. So much in love that he will run away with her, far from the adults world, to Gloria’s safe haven, her grandfather’s house in Brittany on the “pink granite coast”.

Teenagers on the run, from a world which scares them, taking comfort from the sweet moves of the river, they are now on a trip towards an unreachable country…
