Naïma (Mina Farid) has turned 16 just in time to spend the summer with her free-spirited older cousin Sofia (Zahia Dehar). The pair seek out unforgettable encounters during a long summer that will mark them forever. The sun-drenched French Riviera provides the setting for Rebecca Zlotowski’s playful, intimate, and intense coming-of-age story.
