Axelle, Dominique and Conso change every day as they cross the border. They become Athena, Circe, Hera. “Working” girls. Sara Forestier, Noémie Lvovsky and Annabelle Lengronne dance on the tightrope in this accurate and disturbing evocation of brothels in 2020.

The film is a joint endeavor. He directs, she writes the script. Dodo la Saumure opened the doors of his brothels to them, enabling them to address a taboo subject: sex work. Born in a time of austerity measures that hit single mothers hard, this movie questions the place of women in our society. How does one live clandestinely? How does one keep one’s head high? A portrait of female fighters.
