Synopsis

A poetic and sweeping opening sequence sets the scene for Céline Sciamma's (PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE, TOMBOY, GIRLHOOD). Nelly (Joséphine Sanz) is first seen saying goodbye to the residents at the nursing home where her grandmother has just passed away. Whilst sitting in the back seat of their car as she sets off home with mother Marion (Nina Meurisse), Nelly extends her arm around the headrest to share her snacks. This simple and thoughtful gesture sets the tone for an exquisite portrayal of childhood, coming to terms with loss and finding solace in friendship.
