Episodes 1 & 2

In presence of director Anthony Coveney and Éléonore Delvaux-Beaudoin.


Mathilde, a 17 years old with a passion for astronautics, suffers an accident while trying to tinker with a homemade rocket prototype. Mathilde, who had set her sights on becoming the next Valentina Terechkova (the first woman to fly in space), now finds herself missing an arm.


Note from the artistic direction

Actress Eléonore Delvaux-Beaudoin, a magnificent revelation, passionately plays the role of Mathilde, a young, brilliant and shameless teenager who, from her bedroom, only dreams of space. Faced with a terrible accident, she will be forced to open up to others and learn to dream again. Anthony Coveney, both screenwriter and director, gives us an intimate and delicate series.
