84 minutes
Dir. Ingrid Veninger

During a hot and hazy summertime in northern Ontario, 13-year-old Bea (Charlotte Salisbury) wants a best friend more than anything else, but when she meets boisterous Kate (Lucinda Armstrong Hall), she gets more than she imagined. A story of bravery, small-town summer love, and the secret world of girls. Inventive and daring, Veninger explores the vulnerability of being thirteen with insight and humour. Through an intimate and authentic portrait of Bea’s awakening into selfhood, this story invites us to imagine a new model for a young girl’s first love story — one told from the inside out.
