RÉSUMÉ

The Hinterlands is a musical web series that follows the misfortunes of Paul, a teenager who’s bullied at school because of his homosexuality. The young man lives in the countryside and fights on a daily basis against the intimidation and prejudices of which he is the target.
Taking inspiration from the suicide wave of young gay men who were confronted to their classmates’ hatred, the creators aim at showing today’s teenagers that, whatever their sexuality is, they have a role to play in society.
The musical scenes serve as a leitmotif, and allow the use of a less oppressing tone to tackle the issues of bullying and suicide.
