“Wonderfully light of touch, full of well-observed human detail and even-handedly compassionate, this richly human film is full of the quieter values.” — The Hollywood Reporter

Since their parents split up, Sara and her younger sister live with their mother, whose new partner is a woman. Everyday life for the four of them is very similar to that of other families. The situation is actually totally fine with Sara. But not everyone sees it that way – her father in particular has his doubts.

As Sara’s 13th birthday approaches, she feels rather overwhelmed: her first crush, her body is starting to change and to top it all off, conflicts over loyalty with her parents… Everything feels wrong.
