Synopsis

“The kind of mess of a movie that wins you over with its sincerity and passion” –The Hollywood Reporter

In this funny and unflinching adaptation of writer-director-performer Andréa Bescond’s prize-winning autobiographical stage play, Bescond plays Odette, a professional dancer and survivor of childhood sexual abuse who is haunted by the molestation she suffered at the hands of a family friend. Blurring the lines between reality, fantasy, and memory, the film handles its subject matter with great sensitivity, showcasing a woman who reclaims her power through art.
