Description A family moves into a new neighborhood, and a 10-year-old named Laure deliberately presents as a boy named Mikhael to the neighborhood children. It is heavily implied that Mikhael is a closeted transgender boy. This film follows his experiences with his newfound friends, his potential love interest, Lisa, his younger sister and his parents. It focuses in on the significance of gender identity in social interaction from an early age, the difficulties of being transgender and young, and how Mikhael navigates these in the background of childhood play and love.

    This was actually a really good movie. And FYI: In Europe, young girls don't wear tops when they swim until they begin to develop.

    I have a question I'm not trying to be funny but is this a girl or boy playing the role. And what kind of 10 year old is that flat chested... anyways that looks like a good movie.
