Virginie Gourmel | Belgium, Switzerland | 2019 | 87 min.
O.V in French subtitled in English and Spanish

Despite glancing her Bambi eyes at first sight, Kathy is a quiet ticking bomb at the age of 14. Her hopeless desperation will cause her to escape from the psychiatric facility where she has just been admitted, dragging her two roommates with her. She goes in search of her father, of whom she hardly knows anything. Three dysfunctional teenagers on the road, on a dangerous journey for the world and, above all, for themselves.
