The summer is just about to start when Ava receives the news that she’s only months from loosing her eyesight. Her mother decides that everything should go on as usual, and that they will have their best summer together. Ava however has other ideas and faces her summer with determined curiosity. For example she kidnaps a dog, hunts nudists on the beach(!) and teams up with an exiting young man. It’s a complex and refreshing lead role we have the pleasure to meet in this film.. A character portrayed with intimacy and great emotion. Léa Mysius’ debut feature Ava is a warm coming of age story that completely vibrates with imagination.
