Alexis is very convincing when his friend Kate disguises him as a girl so that he can see David one last time. David is also very stylish, and would make a handsome femboy as well. That is why we have selected them to appear in Femboy Magazine. They would be two femboys of degree 2 on the Femboy scale. In addition, the film tells a love story between two boys. This is all we love!
Alexis met David during the summer of 1985 in Normandy. After a heroic act, the enterprising David flirt with the introvert Alexis who does not resist for long to his charm as a beach trader. The circumstances helping, the two boys will live a romance which does them a lot of good. But like a storm that hits when all seems peaceful, evil is never far away. Between temptations and inner demons, Alexis and David must face many obstacles to defend their couple. But what does David really think of love? When there is a drama, society needs answers. Unable to speak correctly, Alexis will begin to write the novel of his tragic story.
Été 85 immerses you in the world of France in the 80s where young people had neither internet nor cell phones to communicate. It was a world where human relationships were different from today. The contacts were more direct and more spontaneous. The dredge more assumed. Without the intermediation of electronic machines, people were talking eye to eye. There were more opportunities to connect with those we love. For example when Alexis had to approach her distant father to ask him to take a letter written to Kate. So Summer 85 is a film that will take you back in time! Change of scenery guaranteed!
