Louise grows up in an isolated region, at the foot of a volcano, in a family that values hard work and the simplicity of country life. Yet, deep within herself, a void persists. Why is she here, in this body, surrounded by these people? Driven by a quest for something beyond her known horizon, Louise yearns to discover what lies beyond. How do the choices we make, the places we live in, those we pass through, the people we meet, and those we love impact the way we are?

Growing Up is an emotional journey through the life of a woman seeking to define her own identity, reconcile her love for her roots with her desire to open up to the world, and find a meaning to her life beyond family conventions and social expectations.

At the heart of the play, the artist returns to her original territory, the Cantal, to invoke memories with the help of a camera and confront them to weave the thread of a story.
