Between high school pressure and family disorganization, Mylia is trying to find her bearings. Two friends will lead towards outlining a new life.

Mylia (Emilie Bierre), a timid 12-year-old child, is about to leave her native countryside to begin high school. Lost in this new hostile environment, she copes as well as she can, sometimes awkwardly, dealing with the absurdities, discomforts and small victories of adolescence. Along the way she encounters Jimmy (Jacob Whiteduck-Lavoie), a young indigenous outsider from the neighbouring reserve who will help her stand her ground and embrace who she really is.

Geneviève Dulude-De Celles’s multi-award winning feature directorial debut is an extremely well executed ,heartfelt, and authentic crowd-pleasing coming of age story. Rated 14A - Coarse Language.
