Film details


Rita is an unruly outsider. Her classmates laugh at her behaviour, her teachers find her rude and her parents lock her in to make her obey. On the verge of womanhood, her clumsy sexual awakening leads her into attempts at intimacy that isolate her even more. One day, Rita crosses the line.
