"A mesmerizing exercise in the enlightenement that can happen when a filmmaker shifts the male gaze ever so slightly and uncovers what looks like a whole new world." - Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post

Oppressed by her family setting, dead-end school prospects and the boys law in the neighborhood, Marieme starts a new life after meeting a group of three free-spirited girls. She changes her name, her dress code, and quits school to be accepted in the gang, hoping that this will be a way to freedom.
