Naima is 16 and lives in Cannes. She has given herself the summer to choose what she wants to do with her life. Then her cousin Sofia, with her alluring lifestyle, arrives to spend the holidays with her.
Naïma16, daughter of a cleaning lady, is about to join an audition with her best friend Dodo in Cannes. The school year is over. It was then that her 22-year-old cousin Sofia arrives from Paris to spend the holidays with her. She is a young woman with a liberated sexuality and does not hesitate to take advantage of her charms. "Catch the moment" is her main motto. Inseparable, foaming beaches and nightclubs, the two accomplices are quick to meet Andres and Philippe, an art collector and his regular matchmaker. Two rich men invite them to their yacht. Sofia then turns Naïm from her everyday reality to the world of luxury, opulence, haute couture, great restaurants, sumptuous Mediterranean villas. This world where everything seems possible.
A French film that exudes sensuality and gracefulness, freedom and its high cost vs simplicity and everyday life, that beautiful girl, Zahia Dehar (ex girl program that fortunately managed to win in this cruel environment), slow film, which many criticized for n leave nowhere, and take nowhere, beyond the comparative criticism between freedom and customs in opposite worlds, very good.
