Mylia starts high school, trying to find her place in the new social setting. She meets the older and more experienced Jacinthe, who introduces her to the world of alcohol parties, but also the sensitive Jimmy, who comes from the indigenous community and lives in a reservation with his grandmother. This realistic coming-of-age film touches upon the sensitive issues of bullying and the country's history. The winner of the Generation section at Berlinale.
