Written and directed by prolific short filmmaker Ricky Mastro, the hard-hitting drama 7 Minutes takes place in Toulouse and tells the story of Jean (accomplished French actor Antoine Herbez), a 55-year-old policeman who discovers his son, Maxime (Valentin Malguy), and his son’s boyfriend, Kevin (Paul Arvenne) hanged in a hotel room.
The autopsy shows that Maxime died from an overdose of GHB, just seven minutes after his boyfriend. During an evening organized by Maxime’s friends, Jean discovers the club BISOU, where his son used to go. There, he meets Fabien (Clément Naline).
Trying to know more about what happened to Maxime and Kevin, Jean goes to the club several times over and is quickly welcomed by the regulars, the Bisouers. But when Fabien becomes unusually attached to him, Jean starts mixing his mourning with a strong, possibly dangerous desire to discover more about his son’s world.
