A young man walks into winter, to try to overcome his own prohibitions: a love encounter with another man, and a search for the absolute and for a Christian spirituality. GPS Signal Losttells about his inner journey, combining Jura snowy landscapes, a medieval courtly novel, and a gay dating app on a smartphone.
Shot on black and white Super 8 mm and built like a suspended mobile, the film is a meditative quest that alternates between the present time and a very distant past.
