12-year-old Mylia lives in the outskirts of Quebec, Canada. Her parents’ divorce announcement puts her into chaos. She meets Jimmy, a young native from the reserve and tries to come out of the world she has known. This coming-of-age film also depicts the rampant racism in the white-centered society. As the winner of the Crystal Beat for best film in the Berlinale’s Generation Kplus, the film describes the process of confusion, overcoming, and awareness of the new world that every adolescent goes through in life.
