Synopsis
Set in the austere decor of 1930s French juvenile correctional facilities, follows the tribulations of 14 year-old orphan Yves Treguier, who is sent from one facility to the next. For a daydreamer and escape artist like Yves, life in juvenile institutions resembles the harsh reality of prison. As he stares at the walls circling the house, Yves dreams of escaping and going to New York City.
