In 2008, 18 girls under 16 in the high school in Gloucester are pregnant at the same time. And it seems not to be an accident for all of them. Some of the girls would have planned together the pregnancy, as part of a secret agreement, to grow up the children in a sort of feminine commune. In which adult social contest could the viral project of maternity gain power? In the black of the scene, two lines of cut-off heads. On one side adults. On the other side the young teenage fathers.
Sorry, Boys is the third stage of the project about Female Resistance.

The Plot
"It starts as a gossip in the high school in Gloucester. There are 18 pregnant girls - 4 times above the average - and it seems not to be an accident for all of them. The story arrives in the city: some of the girls would have planned together the pregnancy, as part of a secret pact, to grow up the children in a sort of female commune. When the headmaster speaks about it on a national newspaper, it becomes a media event and the private life of the 18 girls shocks all the community in Gloucester. Journalists from Australia to Great Britain, from Brasil to Japan crowd the city trying to find an explanation to this disturbing agreement. But they remain empty handed, because the community keep quiet, upset by the fact that the sexual life of their daughters has became the gossip of talk shows all over the world. The Gloucester 18 is a documentary where some of those girls speak, far from the public eye, for the first time. One of them admits to have decided to create a new little world and a new family after being present at a terrible feminicide. This discovery was for me as an alarming sign."
