The story, written by the director herself, revolves around 19-year-old Liane, a bold and radiant young woman who lives with her mother and her little sister in the dusty and sun-drenched town of Fréjus. Obsessed with beauty and the need to be someone, she sees reality television as an opportunity to be loved. Fate finally seems to smile upon her when she attends a casting for Miracle Island.

Produced by Priscilla Bertin and Judith Nora for Silex Films, the movie was co-produced by France 2 Cinéma and Germaine Films. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature has also secured support from the CNC’s advance on receipts, the South (Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur) region, the Alpes-Maritimes department, and the Cinécap, La Banque Postale Image and SG Image Soficas.
