Filmmaker Fred Baillif deploys a documentary style and shifting narrative perspectives to bring us into the different worlds of seven young women who’ve found themselves in residential care, compelled to find family in each other. The story kicks off explosively when one of the girls is removed from the home by the police... A former social worker himself, Baillif workshopped extensively with social workers and La Mif’s cast of first-time actors in order to create a startlingly authentic portrayal of young women coming of age in chaotic and often brutal circumstances.
