Lively six-year-old Cléo loves many things, but most of all Gloria, her nanny. When Gloria’s mother dies and she is forced to return home to take care of her children, Cléo’s father gives in and allows her to spend the summer with Gloria on the Cape Verde Islands. Suddenly, Gloria’s attention is divided between her own son César and her plans for the future. Cléo is no longer the centre of Gloria’s universe. Premiering at Cannes Critics’ Week, this tender and moving coming-of-age drama is the first solo feature directed by Marie Amachoukeli-Barsacq, whose debut Party Girl (co-dir. Claire Burger, Samuel Theis; ZFF 2014) won the Camera d’Or at Cannes.
