Jeanne, a shy young woman, works at night in an amusement park. Fascinated with carousels, she still lives with her mother, the extrovert Margarette. Whereas no man is able to find their place among the rocky and unusual duo, Jeanne starts to grow an odd relationship with Jumbo, the park’s new flagship attraction. Soon, it appears that Jumbo, a striking and colorful merry-go-round, starts communicating with her… After recent revelations Julia Ducournau (Raw) and Coralie Fargeat (Revenge), Zoe Wittock is destined to make an impact as the next emerging female filmmaker with this stunning surreal directorial debut. Official Selection of the Sundance Film Fest.

"First time writer-director Zoé Wittock takes an absurd idea and imbues it with such heart, soul, and beauty that you'll automatically look past the inherent ridiculousness. Instead, you'll simply absorb its glowing sense of wonder." Richard Whittaker, Austin Chronicle

"Empathetic (and erotic)." Amy Nicholson, Variety

"Splitting the difference between TERMS OF ENDEARMENT and Cronenberg’s CRASH in a way that’s often sweet and surreal" Indiewire
