Assayas was seventeen in 1971, the same age as Gilles, his alter ego here. By night, he spray-paints slogans on the walls of his school; by day, he struggles to reconcile his political commitments with his love of painting and drawing. Gilles gradually falls into the arms of committed fellow traveller Christine. When things heat up at their school, Gilles, Christine decide to leave Paris for the summer, But, while politics demand centre stage, they discover that at their age everything is mutable, every day holds new possibilities.
