"The main psychological conflict during adolescence lies between defining our identity and understanding our role in life. The goal of this stage is to answer a main question: "Who am I?" The film uses the changing of seasons as a reflection of the transition from childhood into adulthood. Lead character Anaïs voices her feelings with a mixture of anticipation and anxiety. She's fully aware that things are changing, though not entirely sure to what extent. Each season represents a specific time in one's life: spring full of the carelessness of youth; summer full of opportunities but tinged with sadness as autumn approaches; autumn and winter representing the shift into adulthood where we struggle as we long for the past and accept change as part of being human.
