> 16 years old


Emmanuelle Millet opted for the subject of motherhood, specifically unwanted motherhood, for her first full-length fiction film. Sarah is a 20 year old youngster who decisively opens herself to life, happy to fight for an independent fate without constraints. After a sudden faint, a shock greets her in the form of an unintended pregnancy. Six months pregnant, Sarah feels reluctant to become a mother and having to cut short her recently acquired freedom, but it's just inevitable that her maturity doesn’t grow all at once unsettling her convictions.
