Ruben Amar and Lola Bessis | EE.UU, France | 2013 | 96 min. | V.O French and English subtitled in Spanish and English

Lilas, a young French girl, is playing her last cards in New York, where she has come to escape from her domineering painter mother and to try to establish her own career as an experimental filmmaker. A last opportunity presents itself a few days before her visa expires and she will have to leave the city. By chance, when searching for somewhere to stay, she comes across the apartment of a small family on the Lower East Side. The family consists of Leeward, an eternal adolescent and unemployed idealistic musician, Mary, who works hard every day as a nurse to maintain the family,and their three year old daughter, Rainbow. The arrival of Lilas, who immediately falls for Leeward, precipitates the crisis that was already developing between the couple. And it also precipitates the resolution of Lilas’ own life crisis, and her passage to maturity.
