Alice has never seen her father. When her mother tells her that he is one of France's top music producers - for such stars as Ophélie Winter - Alice leaves Marseilles for Paris and buys a ticket for a dance music show where she hopes to meet him. Once there, she realizes that she wants to be a singer. She uses her talent to show that she is made for it... but soon discovers the other much less glamorous side of show-biz. After setting off as a child looking for her father, Alice discovers her identity as a woman, the thrills of the stage and the love of her fans.
"Alice on stage" is a film that pulses to the rhythm of modern youth's heartbeat. Alice and the rap Katalitik group throw themselves into it. There's only one way to survive : by becoming a star. Alice and all the others characters in the film are a blend of darkness and light. In "Alice on stage", there are no certainties and there's no truth either. It's a film in which everything is possible but in which no one has claimed the final victory. The fame found by Alice and her group may be no more than a passing illusion. Alice knows this, they all know it but they'd rather make the most of the moment of intense happiness that life offers them. "Alice on satge" is a film full of light and music in which the energy and the dash of youth do all they can to push back the limits of the day to prevent night from falling at any cost. (Emmanuel List, screenwriter)
