On a remote island inhabited exclusively by women and children, the youngsters are subjected to bizarre treatments. Nicolas, a ten-year-old boy, is the only one who wonders about the reasons for this situation and what the mothers do at night when they meet on the beach. Following her stunning and equally disturbing Innocence, Lucile Hadzihalilovic is back in the arena with another film that delves deep into the innermost fears and fantasies of childhood.
