A little girl's innocent deception quickly snowballs into something that gradually becomes a crucial component of her identity in director Celine Sciamma's tender childhood drama. Ten-year-old Laure and her family have just moved into a new neighbourhood. Though the little girl longs to make friends her age, she isn't quite certain how to go about it. Then, one day, Laure meets Lisa, and the two girls seem to hit it off. When Lisa makes the assumption that her new friend is a boy, however, Lisa assumes the identity of Michael, and quietly plays along. Before long, Michael has made friends with the other children in the neighborhood as well. Meanwhile, the closer Laure and Michael become, the more delicate Lisa's deception grows.
