Mélanie, Xavier, Virginie, Jordann, Rachel, Thys and Aurélie are fourteen years old. The boys’ voices break; the girls see their bodies change. Flirts, evenings out and drunkenness preoccupy them, while their parents desperately try to maintain – if not influence or authority - a modicum of communication with them. But the youngsters’ need to assert themselves and to shape their identity disrupts their daily lives. Everything, or almost, becomes a source of conflict: phone bills, homecoming hours, and clothes… The rift between the teenagers and their parents gradually widens.
