In 1982, five adolescents (four girls and one boy) find themselves at Vidéographe, to participate in a documentary on the sexuality of youth between 16 and 19 years old. This experience allows the young people to look seriously at themselves and to share their points of view on their sexual growth. These youth demand that we listen to them, inform them, and allow them the pleasures and fears associated with the discovery of this part of themselves. They confide their expectations which are caught between anguish and relief, rejection and acceptance. They reveal personal and difficult aspects of themselves and let down their defenses in order to exchange with the others who feel the same fear of ridicule when faced with their sexuality. Although one summer of filming was too short, it captures the importance of taking steps to express oneself... and learning to listen.
