Synopsis

Paris, summer 1957. A group of teenagers is rehearsing to perform Shakespeare’s Pericles. Anne, a literature student, perturbs the flow when she starts to flirt with one of the boys. Philip, an American expat victim of McCarthyism, stirs nervousness within the group when he evokes the plot that provoked the suicide of Juan.
