A Feature film by Frédéric Videau

Produced by Les Films Hatari

Release in France : 04/04/2012


    A young woman sits at a remote bus stop looking at the image of a missing girl. It is her own photograph; eight years ago, Gaëlle was kidnapped and shut away from the world. Now she has to cope with her traumatic experience and her strange new-found liberty. The film takes the viewer back in time to witness her incredible struggle for survival. Gaëlle crouches in a windowless cellar. She waits and waits for her kidnapper to appear. Since he is her only interlocutor she must somehow find a way to connect with him. As she attempts to establish a relationship slowly the balance of power begins to change. The young girl starts bossing her tormentor; complaining about his long working hours and demanding to be taken out on trips by car at night. After her release she still finds herself left to her own devices, since nobody close to her knows how to behave with someone who has spent half their young life in captivity.

    Gaëlle is suddenly released by Vincent, the man who kidnapped her eight years earlier and who has kept her prisoner ever since. Over the years, they had both become "everything" to each other. This freedom that Gaëlle has won, day after day, against Vincent, she must now claim for herself outside, faced by her parents and the world that she discovers.
