Marco was born in 1965 on the outskirts of Paris and grew up to become a skinhead who hates Arabs, Jews, blacks, communists and gays. It will take him thirty years to rid himself of his anger, racism and hate and become a changed man. Even then, he will find it difficult to forgive himself and let bygones be bygones.

The second feature film by Diastème (Sunny Spells) takes a critical look at the more troubling aspects of France in the second half of the 20th century and examines the roots of the currently flourishing far right. Diastème takes us to the heart of darkness in this profound and engrossing drama featuring a restrained yet powerful performance by Alban Lenoir in the lead role.
