Each year at the University of Saint-Denis the Eloquentia competition takes place. The students of this university decide to participate and prepare with help from professionals, who teach them the difficult exercise of speaking in public. Over the weeks, they learn the subtle inner workings of rhetoric and learn to assert themselves, reveal themselves to others, and most particularly to themselves.
