A French family with two daughters moves to a new neighbourhood during the summer holidays. With her short haircut and tomboy ways, Laure is immediately mistaken for a boy by the local kids and passes herself off as Mikael. A drama about childhood gender confusion with a light and charming touch, exploring relationships between children and between the heart and body.

'The sense of a long, hot, unending summer is well caught, the children are excellent and Zoé Heran is wonderfully natural and touching.' - Philip French, The Observer
