It is the British author Lara Barbier whose Young Adult spy thriller project Sparrowhawk has seduced the creative teams of CANAL+. She has a Master's degree in screenwriting from the London College of Communication. She is currently co-writing a TV movie for Bavaria Fiction.

ALISE (22), introverted and studious, is an intern at the UN in Geneva. She falls in love with Michaela, her roommate. But when her roommate suddenly disappears, she discovers that Michaela belongs to an all-female MI6 black ops group called SPARROWHAWK. While trying to find her, Alise is caught up in the dangerous underworld that is totally unknown to her.

Eight young European scriptwriters participated in this series writing residency created by CANAL+, Vivendi, Université Côte d’Azur and the Mairie de Cannes. The proposed theme was "Feminine - Masculine".
