Liz, a thirteen-year-old girl, feels bored with her life. The strict education at her Catholic school and her daily routines make no more sense to her.


 

 

The socks shoved in her breasts to make them look bigger, the school skirt pulled up to make it look shorter, the male teacher who is the subject of adoration, and the sweet love poem. To a female student who wants to be seen as a woman in front of others, the strict teachings of a Catholic school is suffocating. The environment that Liz and her friends are living in is just that. This film focuses on the 13-year-old girls’ facial expressions rather than chaotically displaying their confusion. Through the eye of the camera that sweeps across the girls in class, and on the face of Liz, we encounter the girls’ desires and sexuality that cannot be suppressed, not even with a disciplinary religion or an oppressive education.
