Coline Confort
2020 - Switzerland - 22mn

At dawn, a cannon shatters the silence. The horses gallop across the beaten ground. Eva, 21, wants to join the Imperial HorseGuards, a historical reenactment of a Napoleonic regiment reserved for men. In search of romance, she conceals her identity so that she can set her foot in the stirrup, defying a 200-year-old ban. In this world of powder and smoke, Eva finally finds herself as she had always dreamed: a handsome soldier beside a beautiful princess.
