Feature Film

Eden, a young medical intern, gets excluded from the neurosurgery department where she is working. She becomes a medic for a trendy nightclub in Paris. So, Eden starts her night life journey of initiation, a progressive immersion bordered by abysses soon turned upside down by Nidhal, an enigmatic figure of Parisian drag queens cabaret scene. A passionate love story begins, to the rhythm of Parisian nights and newfound politicized friendships in a queer and alternative environment.
In the words of the poet, ”Love is to be reinvented”. That is the path followed by Camille’s films and the youth she portrays, a celebration of anything that goes beyond normality. Both a political statement and an alternative sentimental education, her project aims at breaking all sexual, social and ethnic boundaries.
