ZARTMO
by Marc Dalmans

The meeting, during a journey by tram, between a young buck and an old lady. Between the buried desires of one and the nostalgia of the other, a bond is created. For in this strangely empty transport, without driver or any other passengers, the old lady tells the child the story of a friend who died not having realized his dreams. From this lesson of life, what will the adolescent remember?
