When they are home, they are called Maureen, Damien, Camille, François. But when they get at the camp, they become Choucas, Chickaree, Shiba or Akita. Secluded from the rest of the world, their interactions become more intense and conflictual, scouts often get angrier than in normal conditions even though they often laugh harder. More than a documentaryn Scouts is an incursion into the merry chaos of teenagehood.
