Naissances examines an ephemeral connection between strangers and the false hope borne of living in a moment that does and does not belong to you. Young Camille has just had an abortion and is hitch-hicking home when she meets Pierre, an older man who refurbishes furniture. During their journey, both tell lies about their personal lives that are disquieting, but which build a certain hopefulness between them.
