Swagger takes us into the minds of 11 children and teenagers with astonishing personalities who are growing up in some of France's most underprivileged housing projects. The film shows us the world through their singular and unexpected gaze, their funny and incisive thoughts.
By unravelling a mosaic of characters and blending different genres, including musical film and science fiction, Swagger gives life to the words and fantasies of these children from Aulnay and Sevran. Despite their difficult lives, they have dreams and ambition: nobody can take that away from them.
Presented with the support of Institut Francais
