Luna and Amine cross paths. She is 26, he is 17: this is an encounter between strangers in different stages of their lives. Upon exiting the club at dawn, the light hits Luna’s face and she’s confronted with a sense of purposelessness. When Amine passes by, she reaches out to him. Together, they walk through Brussels while the city is waking up. Croisé shows an intense, prolonged moment between two people meeting, arguing, connecting and separating again.
