Summer in a Parisian suburb. Nedjma roams the streets with her friends, the gang is like her second family. When she sees Zina, the new girl in the neighborhood, for the first time, she immediately has a crush. The only problem is: Zina belongs to the hostile clique. Nedjma is torn between her loyalty to her group and her desire for Zina, which grows with every night they spend together in secret.
Sweeping and fast-paced, Marion Desseigne Ravel tells a modern, authentic, raw "Juliet and Juliet" variation. Lina El Arabi and Esther Rollande shine as passionate lovers who fight by day and lie in each other's arms by night. A pearl of young queer cinema from France!
