A French family with two daughters, 10-year-old Laure and 6-year-old Jeanne, moves to a new neighborhood for the summer holidays. With her Jean Seberg hairstyle, Laure decides to make her new friends from her neighborhood believe that she is a boy, Mikael. The summer passes between games and games and her new friend Lisa falls in love with him. The relationship between Mikael and Lisa becomes increasingly close and a budding teenage love is born. At home with her parents and her younger sister, she is Laure; and on the street with her new friends and his girlfriend Lisa, it’s Mikael. Unfortunately, the lie can never be hidden forever and the facts rush. Two weeks to start school. Laure and her parents will have to learn to accept reality and its consequences. Teddy Award at the 2011 Berlin Film Festival and the second film by French filmmaker Céline Sciamma, where she subtly and delicately addresses the issue of gender identity in childhood. Humanistic and necessary.
