Camille loves to spend time in the wild, talking to frogs and chickens and roaming unselfconsciously around. Her big sister Mylia has it tougher. She’s looking for her place among the insecurities of the family and her new school. So it’s also Camille who brings Mylia and Jimmy, the boy from the nearby Abenaki reserve, together. He encourages Mylia to come out of her shell and cross borders. The film follows the children from Québec as they search for themselves.
