Festival starts in


In the summer of '99, four very close sisters have only one idea in mind: to do it. Their discussions solely revolve around that. From this sexual awakening and as their feminine bodies bloom, they slowly become more and more aware of their seductive power and above all they become painfully aware of their universal solitude. The complexity of the relationship that unites them with their overprotective mother turns the summer of ‘99 into a summer of liberty, passion, secret and forbidden. They find out about what pulls them apart and about the fragility of human relationships as they seek to master their own bodies. These are the voices of these four women.

Because so do girls.
