In France, students in their last year of high school are faced with two major challenges: applying to college and passing the baccalaureat exam, a cumulative test in different subjects that requires many months of preparation. Tracking five such pupils from September through June as they plan their futures and get ready for finals, David Andre reveals the ups and downs of 17-year-old Gallic life, though he does it by introducing a slew of song-and-dance numbers that the kids stage throughout the film.

Shot in the distressed seaside town of Boulogne-sur-Mer (the setting of the Alain Resnais classic Muriel), this touching yearlong chronicle mixes the hard facts of growing up with several showstopping numbers that were written and performed by the teenagers themselves.
