SYNOPSIS: Ricochet is the beginning and end of a love story. Agnes is leaving Gael, suddenly, and without explanation. Told across two time spans, through a series of vignettes, RICOCHET is about the tricks of time, perceptions of love and memory’s persistent invasion of reality. Sometimes life can only be understood backwards. Unfortunately, it has to be lived forwards.
