Nothing worse than an angry teenager.
From Barcelona to Paris, this is the story of a lost teenager searching for her father.
“The raw and uncompromising style of a Virginie Despentes. More than promising”. Konbini
 
“Eulalie faces the mirror, holding herself erect; staring at her reflection, she searches for her soul. The eyes are supposed to be the seat of the soul, but in her own eyes, Eulalie only sees a void. Either she doesn’t know how to look or she hasn’t got one –... “Eulalie faces the mirror, holding herself erect; staring at her reflection, she searches for her soul. The eyes are supposed to be the seat of the soul, but in her own eyes, Eulalie only sees a void. Either she doesn’t know how to look or she hasn’t got one – a soul”.
Eulalie is only 17 but has already had a chaotic life: orphaned at the age of seven, after the suicide of her mother, she has found herself embarked on a crazy journey with her lunatic and self-centered baby-sitter, Léonie. Even though Leonie’s company spared her a life of changing foster homes, she is not thankful at all. Léonie being chased by the police, the changing safe houses and her obscure past have left deep scars in the teenager who is unable to find an inner balance, to control her anger, to bond with others and to experience desire.
For ten years now, she lives in Barcelona with Léonie and her partner. But today, she makes a decision: she will go to Paris and find her father to discover her true identity.  
With her raw and lively style, Albane LinŸer retraces the journeys of a group of exceptional, touching and disillusioned human beings, who exemplify the singularities of a generation and of an era.
