Intimate documentary about a group of teenagers with problems. They try to mend their ways at a remote French farm, supervised by committed counsellors.
Their parents are at their wits’ end. A temporary supervision is the last straw for a group of teenagers with all sorts of problems. On a remote farm in France, they have to get their lives back on track, with the help of a counsellor. Problems stemming from the past keep resurfacing. While the teenagers try to tame their demons with music and therapeutic sessions, they are filmed in constant close-up. The troubled kids show us their most vulnerable sides in this documentary.
