Synopsis

Mylia, a timid 12-year-old, must leave her little sister and native countryside to enter high school. Lost in this new hostile environment, she meets Jacinthe, who introduces her to teenage rituals and absurdities, and she befriends Jimmy, a fierce young native from the neighbouring reserve. Together, they will trace the contours of a new life.
