★★★★★ – Eye for Film
A delicate and compassionate feature debut from Basque country filmmaker Estibaliz Urresola Solaguren, telling the story of Cocó, an eight year old confused by the way she is addressed by people.
Strangers remark at what a pretty girl she is, yet family and friends use male pronouns when referring to her.
While spending the summer amongst the beehives with the women in her family, she explores her identity as they come to realisations about their own lives.
