In this choral film, we share in the daily lives of five family planning counselors who advise the adolescent girls and women who come to speak with them. They want to learn about the conditions of a choice that they must or wish to take, rather than to be subjected to it. That choice is to do with their sexual freedom and the moment when they'll have a child or not.

Director Biography

Claire SIMON (1955, UK) was born in London and grew up in the south of France. She studied Ethnology, Arabic and Berber. Refusing to - in her own words - "integrate in a film academy", she taught herself filmmaking. Simon gained experience as an editor and directed short films in a wholly independent way. She specialised in direct cinema, made several documentaries, and in 1997, Simon made her first feature film. In 2014, IFFR screened Claire Simon's feature film Gare du Nord and her documentary Human Geography.
