It's summertime, and a veil of sadness hangs in the air. 12-year-old Cleo and her cousins ​​are left to deal with the grief on their own after the death of Cleo's sister. While the adults are paralyzed by grief, and a growing sense of anxiety fills the house. The young girls use the opportunity to explore their own budding sexuality and femininity.
