Storyline

At an age when perhaps friends mean more than moms, 10 year-old Sun is an outcast at school. During summer vacation, she meets Jia, who is new to town. As Sun shows Jia around the neighborhood and they play at each other's houses and share secrets, they become best friends. However when the new semester starts, Jia notices a strange vibe between Sun and the other kids. Jia tries to get into the cool kids group and starts to distance herself from Sun. Inside the perhaps more complex and delicate world of children than adults, the two girls end up hurting and getting hurt by each other. Written by FINECUT

Perfect movie
26 March 2020 | by alansabljakovic-39044See all my reviews

Honestly, one of the best debut films out there and it is a shame that only 500 people watched it. The movie perfectly shows realtionships between adults and kids and between kids. The performances are all great, the young actors are especially awesome. The ending is just perfectly sums the whole movie up and it left me feeling numb. I highly recommend it and please do yourself a favor and watch it! Better than Mean Girls.
