    • Synopsis
    • Children are playing…
      In the evening of May 10, 1981, when a Socialist president was elected for the first time in France, a stranger, in his forties, arrives in La Croix-Brunière, a peaceful neighbourhood in the South of France. Days go by. That stranger, amnesiac, happens to be the only survivor of a tragedy that occurred 30 years ago almost day to day. A tragedy in which seven children disappeared…
      Wavering between the tenderness of The Button War and the violence of Lord of the Flies, and based on the mechanisms of defective memories and the parallel between two periods, The Witch with White Breasts explores the bumps of an initiation into adult life, highlighted by the lack of the mother and the children’s boundless imagination.
