During six months, 8 girls on the verge of womanhood were accompanied on their journey involving several encounters in which they are consciously working towards becoming young women, guided by a female community. Step by step they grow in confidence, learn to set their personal boundaries and discover their own femininity. In a final ceremony, they say goodbye to their childhood. It is a journey full of mixed emotions and surprises.
