Bernadette Jouve (Bernadette Lafont, in her debut, later a big star starting with Claude Chabrol’s Les beau Serge and Les bonnes femmes) is the most beautiful girl in town. In fact every young boy in town has been inspired by her seductive beauty. But since they are too young to love her, they decide the next best thing is to torture her with their childish games.
