When Clémence travels out to the country to attend a garden party with her parents, she’s excited about meeting the other kids. But they’re already romping around and don’t seem to notice her. They even mock her and leave her behind in the woods. And the grown-ups? Too absorbed in their oh-so-important conversations. With charcoal and coloured pencils, the director sensitively traces how it feels to be pushed away by others.
