Synopsis

This spirited coming-of-age story follows Marieme, a teenager growing up in a housing estate on the outskirts of Paris with her younger sister and abusive older brother. With few options for escape from a difficult life, Marieme falls in with a group of girls who encourage her to quit school, change her name and wear different clothes. Her new identity and close friendships offer confidence and a release from her troubles, but Marieme questions if she will be able to gain the freedom and independence she seeks. Despite some difficult subjects this film captures some of the exuberance of youth, never patronising its subjects and featuring a fantastic pop soundtrack.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
