Award-winning author, Lola Lafon continues her exploration of the psyches of young girls-their fragility, their resilience.

Fontenay, a Parisian suburb, 1984. Cl o is 12 when her parents prod her into taking ballet classes. She drops out after a long year of feeling lost, not classy nor graceful enough, and undoubtedly not as rich as the other kids.

By chance, she signs up for Modern Jazz class at a MJC-a state funded organization whose mission is to provide access to art and culture to all children.

Modern Jazz is her calling, and soon Cl o is transformed, working out constantly, dreaming of becoming a professional dancer. That's when she catches the attention of Cathy, an elegant middle-aged woman, who is a talent scout for Galat e-a foundation that gives fellowships to exceptionally gifted teenagers.

Fascinated by Cathy and the many gifts with which this providential "godmother" is showering her, Cl o introduces her to her parents, receiving their blessing to spend more and more time with her, ultimately falling prey to Galat e's trap.
