Synopsis: From the top of the cliffs in Marseille, extreme divers are looking for the big thrill and a feeling of freedom.
Nicknamed Loulou, Lionel Franc is one of the cliff diving enthusiasts. Regularly, this Marseillais dives from the top of the cliffs that punctuate the coastline of the city of Marseille. His favorites are the Calanques, a classified site. Like Loulou, many young people from poor neighborhoods take up this discipline and experience the risk, but also the freedom.
