"Freedom to say no!
Young and rebellious, they burn with a vital thirst for emancipation. Dancing all night long, roaming the city, living as they want, getting out of the box, far from families, from the moral and sexual order. They went before the juvenile court and ended up in disciplinary institutions. In the 1950s, they were locked up in the Good Shepherd. In 2020, they were placed in a closed environment. Here, a screened room, a road, a sky and the mad freedom of these young girls. Sandrine Lanno composes a mosaic of portraits of authentic women seventy years apart, rebels of the fifties or rebels of today.
Sonia Chiambretto mixes fiction and documents to give a powerful and musical, theatrical and poetic language to these adolescent figures who oppose authority and resist injunctions.
Within the framework of the residency of the company "L'Indicible Compagnie" at the Scène de recherche de l'ENS Paris-Saclay, two collective interdisciplinary projects - At the crossroads of narratives, mixing theatrical and sociological writing, have nourished this creation.  This work was carried out with students from the ENS and CentraleSupélec, under the direction of sociologist Natacha Chetcuti-Osorovitz (permanent researcher).
