LA REVOLTE DES INNOCENTS
No upcoming broadcast (for now).
1910. Ten year-old Gaston is sent to Les Vermiraux, an establishment supposed to offer disadvantaged children a good education. In reality they are abused and exploited. A revolt breaks out that finally leads to the torturers being put on trial. And the first child protection laws in France.
