A beauty pageant plays out in a small village in rural France. The film’s narrative follows the winner and runner up, two young women, as their placing is put in a wider context of two families in a feud. And from this intensely tight conflict, a larger, touching and surprising drama unfolds. A modern and different take on the story of Romeo & Juliet.
