Young Hope. The tensions of contemporary youth

"We merely ask that you take some time to listen to us."
With these words, a group of high school students from Roubaix provoke a discussion with the adults who usually educate them. 

A rare moment of honesty in the school environment, which questions the right to dream in a world subjected to the demands of success.
