Néon Boréal - Episode 4: The One With The Birthday Program

From the commercial fryers of the White Castle restaurant to the icy S.O.S. signals of the ship Aurora Arctic, we will cover nearly 5,000 kilometres to reconstruct, against winds, tides and chapels, the thread of a love story cast adrift. We will shout “Long live the bride and groom!” as we would shout “Mayday!” An unexpected episode, a tragic tale that caught the entire Néon Boréal production team off guard.
