Summary :

For 16-year-old Marieme, life is like a succession of prohibitions. The neighborhood's censorship, boys ruling the roost, school's dead end. Her encounter with three liberated girls changes everything. They dance, fight back, talk loudly, laugh at everything. Marieme becomes Vic and joins the gang, to make the most of her youth.

Résumé :

Marieme vit ses 16 ans comme une succession d’interdits. La censure du quartier, la loi des garçons, l’impasse de l’école. Sa rencontre avec trois filles affranchies change tout. Elles dansent, elles se battent, elles parlent fort, elles rient de tout. Marieme devient Vic et entre dans la bande, pour vivre sa jeunesse.
