Saturday, 30 March – h 19.30 • Cinema PortoAstra
La fête est finie is the story of the revival of Céleste and Sihem. Arrived on the same day in a rehab facility, they’re going to seal an indestructible friendship. It will be a force as much as an obstacle when, expelled from their shelter, they are left on their own, facing the real world and its temptations. The real fight will then begin; fight for sobriety and freedom, fight towards life.
