In everyone's childhood, there is a turning point, a singular event, that plays an essential role in the development of the adult one has become. Essential, for it allows the child to cross a threshold, to state his personality in relation to his parents, his friends, in one word, to "grow up". Essential also, because this event will have been sufficiently pregnant to permanently influence the creative universe of this future adult. The starting point of each part of the film is a childhood story, taken from the biography of a great film maker. The story is freely interpreted and adapted by a young french director. Fritz Lang, Orson Welles, Jacques Tati, Alfred Hitchcock, Jean Renoir and Ingmar Bergman by Yann Le Gal, Isild Le Besco, Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige, Corinne Garfin, Ismaël Ferroukhi, and Safy Nebbou.
