Ninnoc has trouble with groups. Why does everyone have to behave the same way, look the same way? A movie about exclusion and belonging, about being yourself and peer pressure.

At her old school she didn’t belong, at her new school she doesn’t completely show herself. She doesn’t want to simply conform, but is also afraid of being excluded. The montage and style of the film echo how Ninnoc feals – and perhaps help the audience understand why such a smart girl finds some things so difficult.
