At the beginning of summer, 10-year-old Laure (Zoé Héran) and her family move to a new home in Paris. While exploring her new neighbourhood, Laure befriends a local girl who assumes that Laure is a boy. Laure doesn’t correct her and embarks on a summer-long reinvention as ‘Mickäel’. Sciamma’s coming-of-age portrait of a child navigating their identity and place is intimate, empathetic and timelessly relevant.
