Philippe Lesage's drama with autobiographical elements is a loose sequel to his debut, The Demons. In his second film, he presents a complex and detailed study of adolescence with all its ups and downs. A group of three teenagers struggle with their first loves and disappointments. While all of them are inexperienced due to age, they certainly assert their right to love and be free at a time when conformity was a virtue.
