Synopsis:
Millie is a testosterone-driven 14-year-old girl who wants to be a bodybuilder in Muscles (Australia). On a journey to find materials for their son’s tombstone, a family’s repressed feelings of loss come to the surface in The Descent (Israel). The breakup has happened but the break has not in Some Boys Don’t Leave (USA). A 10-year-old blind girl has a mysterious encounter that leads to a rare moment of freedom in the claustrophobic Rita (Italy). James Franco’s The Feast of Stephen (USA), paying homage to the work of Kenneth Anger, is an atmospheric tale of one boy’s brush with forbidden adolescent desires. Sara prepares a surprise for her wife’s birthday, but all does not go according to plan in Birthday (Sweden/Poland). In The Swimmers (Cuba), a swimming instructor teaches children to swim in a little town near Havana, but there’s only one problem: the pool is empty.
