winner A Colony | Une colonie

Mylia is about to leave her native countryside to begin high school. Lost, she copes as well as she can, sometimes awkwardly, dealing with the absurdities and small victories of adolescence. Along the way she encounters Jimmy, a young indigenous from the neighbouring reserve, who will help her stand her ground and embrace who she really is.
