A village in the South of France, 1960. A band of country boys aged 7 to 14, led by fearless young Lebrac, wages an uncompromising battle against their sworn rivals, the kids from the neighboring village. A war of honor in which no tactic is too extreme, including attacking the enemy stark naked! With their newest recruit, the ingenious tomboy called Lanterne, victory is a skipping stone’s throw away. But it’s not easy not to get into trouble with Mom and Dad after coming home from battle with torn clothes and missing buttons! A tender, funny, poignant family comedy.
