It's the late eighties and British teenagers Vicki and Sage go on
the run in Paris after burning down their art school pottery shed.
Penniless, homeless, and worst of all, out of cigarettes, it isn't
long before they find themselves living on the streets. Survival
means not only learning to navigate the perils of soup-kitchens,
begging, hallucinogens and sleeping rough, but also dealing with
charismatic gypsy fire-eaters, violent German hoboes, teargas-happy
gendarmes and sexual predators, including Taffy, a psychotic
one-legged Welshman. While Sage battles with her own damaging
secrets in the angry scrawls of her diary, naive Vicki finds
herself drawn to the damaged and often dangerous people living
outside society. Can the girls emerge from this experience with
their friendship and sanity intact? Both harrowing and darkly
humorous, Pompidou Posse is a unique glimpse into the dark side of
Europe's most glamorous city.
