The Château des Vaux could rival with some Loire valley castles. But there are no tourists nor cameras here, only cellphones and hundreds of teenagers wearing tracksuits or slim jeans. We hear bursts of laughter as they speak in Pashtun, English, arabic, French, Bambara... They run, play and kiss. This site belonging to the Apprentis d'Auteuil Foundation situated at 35 kilometres from Chartres opens its doors for us for the first time since its establishment. This documentary is the result of a year of conversations with 6 teenagers who are living and starting over "at the castle", far away from their families.
