Secret Nest. The women of the forgotten palace

Near the historic beaches of Normandy, the lives of these residents unfolded behind the facade of castle, under which they sheltered single mothers and wards of the state. 

Caught between imprisonment and protection, violence and hope, these unique owners of a castle return to the sites to bring them back to life.
