An immigrant family from Senegal is waiting for their father to join them. Meanwhile, Amy, the eleven-year-old girl in the family is fascinated by her free-spirited neighbor Angelica. Her traditional value set system is in contrast to Angelica’s free and disobedient nature. Amy, however, gains some of their attention and urges the group to take part in a dance competition. They want to reach their goals through twerking, a dance move that Marium, Amy’s mother would never approve of.
This film captures the vulnerabilities that tweens especially go through. Amy’s character has many facades, from a good girl at home to a teenage girl trying to gain a sexualized image.
