Synopsis : François, a young newly graduated doctor, leaves Paris to settle in Beauval, a new town where the brand new suburban housing align monotonously in the Residence “Les Hauteurs de Beauval”. François quickly becomes the target of a group of teenagers led by Cédric and Matthieu, the charismatic leader and his mate.
