Lulu is 15 years old, living in an idealized French countryside with her parents. Her mother has been depressed and sickly as far back as she can remember, a state which is about to be challenged by a Lulu who slips slowly into young adulthood. The real trigger occurs when Lulu stumbles on an old picture of her mother, where she’s radiant, and Lulu realizes something must have happened along the way. Her second thought, being the entrepreneurial
type that she is, is it may also be the route to get her back. A two generational first-love tale unfolds with Lulu at the helm.
