Céline Sciamma made the most of France’s 2020 Covid-19 spring lockdown to write the screenplay for her fifth feature, which she then shot last autumn. It opens with young Nelly (Joséphine Sanz) saying farewell to a nursing home following the death of her maternal grandmother. Accompanying her mother Marion (Nina Meurisse) to her leafy childhood home, Nelly takes part in her parents’ clearing of her grandmother’s belongings. One day, Nelly finds that her mother has abruptly departed, leaving her alone with her kind father (Stéphane Varupenne). As Nelly goes exploring in the autumnal landscape that surrounds the house, she comes across a wooden fort built in the forest and meets a curiously familiar girl named Marion (Gabrielle Sanz).
