THE FRESHMEN / PREMIÈRE ANNÉE (N/C 15+)
Antoine is about to start his first year of medical school… for the third time. Benjamin, just out of high school, is making his first foray. He soon realises it’s not exactly a walk in the park… In a fiercely competitive environment, with nights dedicated to hard studying rather than hard partying, the two freshmen will have to adapt and find a middle ground between despair for the present and hope for the future. After Hippocrate (2014) and Médecin de campagne (2016) director Thomas Lilti tackles another tale with a medical background.
