Part of the Cinema in the City season

In director Laura Wandel’s debut, Nora (Maya Vanderbeque), an anxious 7-year-old witnesses her older brother, Abel (Günter Duret) being bullied by other kids. She rushes to protect him, but Abel forces her to remain silent. Caught in a conflict of loyalty, Nora tries to find her place, torn between children's and adult's worlds. An eventual confrontation between Nora and Abel leads to a startling climax
