CA 2019. D: Genevieve Dulude-De Celles. A: Genevieve Dulude-De Celles. 102 min. Feature. French OV with Eng. ST. and German voice-over. Suitable from age 6. Recommended from age 12

Welcome to High School! Too bad that Mylia doesn´t feel comfortable there at all. The twelve-year-old prefers to retreat rather than approach others. The beginning friendship with the cool Jacinthe seems to open her doors. But what does it mean to be a part of something? Mylia soon realizes that she doesn`t like what the other girls in the clique are pushing her to do. Jimmy, a boy from a nearby Abenaki reserve, behaves quite differently. He likes Mylia because she is an outsider like him. A film about the courage to go his own way. (StS)
