LOVE ME IF YOU DARE

by Yann Samuell

synopsis

Julien and Sophie are both eight and best friends, adorable tricksters and borderline psychotics. On one of childhood’s darker days, as Julien gradually becomes aware that his cherished mother is fatally ill, he stands up for Sophie by pulling a mischievous stunt on classmates who had viciously taunted her. From that moment on, Julien and Sophie will trade fearful and hilarious dares for decades, taking manic pleasure in trying to outdo each other’s audacity or cunning. They swear, insult authorities, stop traffic to share a youthful kiss and try to ruin a wedding or two. They are irrepressible, as is the love they will ultimately share.
