Johanne Prégent / 2023 / 11 min. / Canada / FRENCH / ENGLISH SUBS
Clara, 14-year-old, eats her lunch every day hidden away in the school bathroom. In the eyes of her peers, she’s a bitch. She has suffered their bullying, but now knows how to avoid her tormentors, although her school life remains troubled and dysfunctional. When 12-year-old Felix stumbles into HER room looking for a place to hide, the hunted teens find themselves in forced isolation. Forced to spend time together, their resistance gives way to complicity, and when Felix’s attackers find their hideout, the pair have to think quick to elaborate a plan. In a brave mix of improvisation, sincerity and sensitivity, they make up a strategy to change their fates.
