Inspired by a true story that took place in France in 2008, Delphine and Muriel Coulin's provocative debut focuses on a group of bored teenage girls who all make an irrevocable pact.

“An interesting fable-like atmosphere pervades this story…” - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

“Impressively, the rookie scribe-helmers' sense of equilibrium is unerring and also surprisingly subtle… Louise Grinberg ("The Class") is luminous” - Boyd Van Hoeij, Variety

"A solid feature directorial debut, vested in real life but encompassing global subjects, its stunning visuals serving its subject well.” - Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews

“Delphine and Muriel Coulin make it easy to connect with the characters because so many of their problems have been our problems.” – William Brownridge, Toronto Film Scene
