Overview

An orthodox Jewish teen living with her family in France attempts to balance her religious upbringing with her increasingly complex view of the outside world in director Karin Albou's incisive meditation on religion, philosophy, and the weight of romance on the mind of a growing girl. Eighteen-year-old student Laura Fanny Valette lives with her widowed mother Sonia Tahar, her sister Elsa Zylberstein, and her brother-in-law Bruno Todeschini in the suburban Paris neighborhood of Sarcelles.

An overly serious and self-disciplined girl whose outward maturity defies her youthful age, Laura vows to avoid romance before finding that fate doesn't always play by the rules.
