It's the story of a woman who has lived everything. Who has lived several lives. It's the story of a woman who was a century ahead of her time. It's the story of Josephine Baker.
Today, Josephine is the idol of a broke dancer, a Drag Queen, a Kurdish solider, a young activist, a busy mother, and a sick grand-mother. Every each of them takes from Josephine the courage and inspiration they need. But Josephine doesn't know all that yet, as she tries to live the life she wants for herself.

She then wrote The Abandoned, a short-film set in Occupied France. She visited the Moulin d’Andé, where she wrote the short film Devil in Disguise, a dark comedy about the Presleys.

WOMAN is my first attempt in television writing. The idea was born when I was still at l'ESEC. I've been working on this mini series for two years, and I am now very pleased to be able to show the pilot. Josephine Baker has been an inspiration of mine for a long time. Her struggles throughout her life are the same that our generation is facing, and I hope her ambition, her will and her strength will be empowering for the ones in need to be reminded how much someone can achieve on their own.
