Romain Goupil was just a teenager when he joined France's radical Left in the 1960s. With equipment borrowed from his cameraman father, he shot a great deal of film documenting his fellow militants and their protests. Here Goupil combines that footage with other archival material and present-day interviews, creating a record of the events leading up to and following May 1968. He focuses particularly on his friend Michel, trying to understand why this idealistic young man committed suicide.
