SEASIDE (Bord de Mer) is a film about Cayeux, a small beach town in France. Beautiful young Marie works at a pebble processing plant. Her boyfriend, Paul, a warehouse employee in winter and a lifeguard in summer, doesn't understand Marie's dreamy temperament and stifles her with his clumsy love. The people who vacation in Cayeux remind Marie that youthful dreams lie elsewhere. She wants to leave, and when Albert, a young executive at the plant gets fired, he seems like a genuine Prince Charming.
