Mylia is about to leave her native countryside to begin high school. Lost, she copes as well as she can, sometimes awkwardly, dealing with the absurdities and small victories of adolescence. Along the way she encounters Jimmy, a young indigenous from the neighboring reserve, who will help her stand her ground and embrace who she really is. Genevieve Dulude-de Celles’ closely observed coming-of-age movie which won the Crystal Bear for best film in the Berlinale’s Generation Kplus — an award given by a children’s jury and earned more laurels at the Quebec City and Whistler film festivals.
