The acclaimed French Director Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire) gives us another wonderfully enchanting tale. When 8 year old Nelly's grandmother dies, she goes with her parents to help sort out her grandmother's house, which is her mother's childhood home. There she meets another young girl whose life soon shows startling parallels to Nelly's own.

A mix of fairy tale, ghost story and rites-of-passage journey, this is at heart a cinematic parable about healing inter-generational wounds. Whether you are 6 or 60, this astonishingly insightful and heartbreakingly hopeful cinematic poem will pierce your heart
