The land of High Stakes, depicts a world that needs money. In their quest for this elusive resource, ministers and diplomats congregate for an emergency meeting in Parliament.

This film stems from a year-long exploration in dance and film, conducted with teenage patients on the floors of two psychiatric hospitals in Marseille and Paris, France. In collaboration with Virginie Combet, these teenagers co-wrote and performed the piece.
