The Freshmen

Première année

In the most famous Medical School in Paris, amphitheaters are heated with the excessive effort of the freshmen who prepare for their annual exam: only a 2% of them will make it to the second year from the first time around. As this extreme selection process is focused on “the ability to digest as much information as possible,” students self-organize, trying different recipes for success. In this highly antagonistic environment, a strong friendship is born. A mandatory core course on the revision of the true meaning of education and an anatomy lesson on a lifetime relationship.
