On a hot summer night in Paris, Félix meets a young woman, Alma, and falls in love. The next morning, Alma hops on a train to join her family in southern France.
Félix, determined to follow his soulmate, embarks on a carpool ride with his best friend Chérif and their reluctant driver Edouard. When the car breaks down upon arrival, things turn sour: Alma doesn’t seem too pleased by this unexpected visit.

A delightful showcase for the talents of its diverse, fresh-faced cast (…) letting its characters primarily be who they are, not what they represent.

À l’abordage is loosely in the Rohmerian relationship comedy-drama tradition, only here, it’s updated for the 21st century and aged-down to reflect the vanguard of France’s Generation Z
