Following the ‘Sciences Porcs’ scandal at the beginning of 2021 and recent investigations into the extent of rape and sexual assault at Centrale Supelec and business schools, more and more students are reporting cases of sexual harassment or assault. This documentary gives a voice to five students and doctoral students, victims of harassment or rape, who are fighting to ensure that such violence is no longer swept under the carpet. From the lack of action by the institution to the activism of the victims, this film explores both the consequences of trauma on the human psyche and the often inadequate response of public authorities in preventing and dealing with such violence.
