How French minors, teenagers from all socio-cultural backgrounds, can be brainwashed to the point of attempting to leave for Syria and what are the challenges facing those who try to help and turn them around before it’s too late. Melanie is 16 years old. She ponders the meaning of life and the state of the world. She wants to be a doctor. She lives in Créteil, a suburb of Paris, with her mother, who is raising her on her own. Like her friends, Melanie is constantly “connected” via social networks. Spotted by recruiters, she falls in love with one of them before converting and growing increasingly radical, one by one cutting off ties with her former life. Sonia is 17. She is caught trying to leave for Syria and almost commits the unthinkable. Because she is still a minor, the judge allows her to return home under the surveillance of her parents and special educators. As Melanie is gradually indoctrinated, Sonia follows the opposite path, the return path. Will she be able to leave the spiral and rebuild her life?
