Catherine de la Hougue is an atypical rural judge with a particular interest in prevention. The juvenile court in Coutances, Normandy, opens its doors to us as we focus on three cases in which children are either at risk or charged of misdemeanours. What will the judge decide? What will become of those involved? Two young people brought before Catherine de la Hougue share their stories.
A glimpse into the world of juvenile justice in the company of the men and women who step in to give children a second chance.
