Corps a Corps
Original title: Touchées
Attack, defend, hit and be hit… Women who have been victims of violence get a chance to rebuild themselves and reconnect with others thanks to a therapeutic fencing program.
Lucie sleeps with a knife in her hand. She lives in fear, terrified by any man. Tamara is a fighter, constantly on guard: to make sure she’s never going to be a victim again, she’s become the aggressor. As for Nicole, she has chosen to withdraw. She is erasing herself, disappearing so she can’t be a target anymore. All three were the victims of sexual violence.
To get back on track, three women pick up swords. Attack, defend, hit and be hit… They will be able to rebuild themselves and reach out to others thanks to a therapeutic fencing program. A year-long program to save themselves and take control of their own lives once again.
