Synopsis

Khédidja works for a wealthy family in Paris who offers her childcare during the summer in Corsica. This is an opportunity for her to return to the island which she left behind years ago with her daughters, Jessica and Farah. While Khédidja fights with their memories, the two teenagers give themselves over to all the temptations of summer: unexpected encounters, pranks and their first love experiences. This trip will be an opportunity for them to discover a hidden part of their life.
