Adapted from the novel written by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette. Montreal. A popular neighbourhood. An apartment building. Three flayed childhoods collide. Mélissa, Eddy and Karine live in the same block. From an early age, they have to deal with an environment that already eats adults alive. Whores’ corner, wrestling matches, the difficult neighbourhood, parents’ debauchery evenings, bad company, dressing in thrift stores, discount shopping; for them, all this is normal. This is the environment in which they grow up. Are their parents to blame? Or do they love as much as they can? Are we all condemned to reproduce what we have known? Can they dream for a moment of a little better?

WIPE ME AWAY is a choral web series where each episode deals with the point of view of a child, his or her parents and the incredible daily life they face.
