Show resume

The Flood is set at the sea. There is a house by the sea. Here lives an amorous couple, a man and a woman. They have nicely appointed their lives: a beautiful setting, time together, time for themselves. But, one morning, bodies have washed up on the beach, a few adults first, then a child.

He does what he can to continue his life as undisturbedly as possible. She becomes increasingly affected by what happened. While the loving couple used to be so good at being together in silence, their silence has now become an abyss of incomprehension. Maybe she could have saved the child - could have held it in her arms - she thinks, if only he had helped her? Or is she actually being cowardly, and is she blaming him as an excuse for her not having acted? Why doesn’t he say something?

The Flood is about our (in)ability to empathize with the other, about how we behave when something threatens our happiness, about the impact of the world on our private lives.
