Storyline

Plot Summary

A family moves into a new neighborhood, and a 10-year-old named Laure deliberately presents as a boy named Mikhael to the neighborhood children. It is heavily implied that Mikhael is a closeted transgender boy. This film follows his experiences with his newfound friends, his potential love interest, Lisa, his younger sister and his parents. It focuses in on the significance of gender identity in social interaction from an early age, the difficulties of being transgender and young, and how Mikhael navigates these in the background of childhood play and love.

Goofs After the fight over the attack on Jeanne - which Laure wins, we see Laure attentively dressing the graze on Jeanne's knee, and adding a blue-coloured sticking plaster (Band-Aid). In the next scene, when (the un-named) mother finds out that Laure has been passing herself off as a boy, she demands that Laure wear a dress, when they both go to the neighbour to apologise. Laure is sitting on the bed with Jeanne, but all traces of Jeanne's knee injury, and even the sticking plaster, have disappeared. See more »

Quotes [subtitled version]
[to Laure]
Rayan: We hear you're a girl. We're gonna check that.
Lisa: Stop it! What do you think you're doing?
Rayan: We're gonna check if she's really a girl.
Lisa: Leave him alone.
Rayan: You're right. It's YOU who'll check.
Lisa: No, I won't.
Rayan: If she's a girl, then you kissed her. It's disgusting. Right?
Lisa: Yes, it's disgusting.
Rayan: Then, you're gonna do it.
