These neighbors may make you leave or make you want to leave.

No jobs, no money, in need of a place to live? Sounds familiar, right? Elodie and Marie are two disenchanted teenagers, stuck in the same situation. As the saying goes, “Desperate times call for desperate measures.” Unfortunately, their solution for solving their problems is a bit extreme: Kick out the ”old people” who are responsible, in their eyes, for the current social imbalance and fill the apartments with teens who will work better as a community. But will their cold calculations prove to be their salvation, or their undoing? Sweet Girls is a dark comedy and contemporary fable, a bittersweet portrait of our society through the eyes of two teenage girls who think they can solve the problems of the world with their romantic and naive view of life.
