Au cœur d’un foyer d’accueil, une bande d’adolescentes vivent avec leurs éducateurs. Comme une famille, elle ne se sont pas choisies et elles vivent sous le même toit. Lorsqu’un fait divers met le feu aux poudres, c’est tout un système sclérosé et rétrograde qui se révèle au grand jour.

"The aesthetic, for one, solidifies this motif with a documentarian, fly on the wall approach from the director of photography Joseph Areddy, who expertly blends what feels like reality and fiction into one medium."
Jak Luke Sharp, Clapper

"DP Joseph Areddy’s roving camera coverage captures the abject chaos of the group home environment, giving the sense that we’re intruding upon events that would be unfolding whether the camera were there or not."

" cinematographer Joseph Areddy’s nimble camerawork. Placed right in the room beside these young women, the camera picks up on the tension and responds with every grimace, eye roll, and muttered curse, magnified by astute and selective framing."
Emily Maskell, We Love Cinema

"DoP Joseph Areddy’s often handheld camera captures the febrile setting where continuous psychological warfare unfolds between staff and kids in a cauldron of dysfunction."
Meredith Taylor, Filmuforia
