Synopsis:

It’s summer, 1966. The sun is shining, and the world is full of possibilities. But for 15-year-old Élise (Fortier), there’s trouble brewing under the surface of her happy home life.

When a shocking discovery causes her mother to leave the family, everyone is stunned. Amidst the chaos, Élise decides that it’s up to her to step up and fix things. While her dad and two brothers retreat into their own inner worlds, Élise remains undeterred. As she tries to keep her family’s troubles a secret, Élise discovers that nobody around her has a life as perfect as it seems at first glance.
