Marieme, a teenage girl of African descent, lives on the outskirts of Paris. She seems dutiful, self-effacing. Then she meets Lady, the leader of a girl gang, and her life changes. Marieme's liberation is real, but in this world she's still subject to male authority. The film reveals the general condition of being a girl in her situation, but keeps close watch on the specific girl at its heart.
"Beautifully observed, precisely directed and acted with wonderful conviction, it pulls us into the life of its protagonist in a deeply involving way." Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
