Dix-sept ans


Jean-Benoît is seventeen years old and embarking on an apprenticeship to be a diesel engine mechanic. Between the garage where he works, his love affair with Hélèna, and his conflictual relationship with his mother, the film shows Jean-Benoît‘s inability to learn and his difficulty in leaving behind a childhood scarred by the disappearance of his father. And yet, gradually, Jean-Benoît is beginning to rebuild his life.
