For years, two clans from different social classes have shared a campground and antagonized each other. How can a war handed down from one generation to the next be ended? These "children who take their war game seriously" face a dilemma: they must choose between friendship and the need to prove their aggressive nature. They must at all cost avoid the humiliation of defeat for fear the grownups will see them as weaklings.
These young warriors use every means at their disposal to destabilize the adversary: espionage, sabotage and the "eco-diabolical" weapon. But the hanging fortress is the supreme magical invention to demoralize the enemy and show technological prowess.
This rivalry places Sarah and Julien in an awkward situation; they are in love but on opposite sides. Furthermore, their clandestine liaison leads them to question the reasons underlying this endless war.
When frustration is at its peak and imagination has run dry in one of the camps, anarchy takes over and tragedy looms. Will irreparable damage be done?
La forteresse suspendue is also a film in the "Contes pour tous" series produced by Rock Demers.
