Dalva, 12, lives alone with her father. One evening, the police storm their home and take her into foster care. As Dalva befriends her new roommate Samia and social worker Jayden, she gradually comes to understand that the love she shared with her father was not what she thought. With their help, Dalva will learn to become a child again. In this poignant debut feature Emmanuelle Nicot explores the ramifications of abuse with deep sensibility and uncompromising grace in a hopeful journey to recovery. A Cannes Critics’ Week winner.
"Samson is excellent, navigating Dalva’s emotional journey with honesty and insight."
