Directed by : Marie Dumora

James and Jim, Anthony and the others are about to pass their CAP (Certificat of Professional Aptitude).  They are 17 years old and living in Alsace. They live with other boys in the Mertian Institute and will soon be free to find jobs and become men. Trying to stay on the straight and narrow when everything around you and sometimes inside you is falling apart ; sticking to the path, the right one when on either side are girls, bowling, mopeds (of others), fights and fields of poppies. Making oneself a place in the sun in this vast world with a sander and a chisel, preferably the best, the least bad or the one that’s left.
