Although her aunt, uncle, and younger cousin Anna welcome her with open arms, it’s only very slowly that Frida begins to get used to her new home in the countryside. Striking a careful balance between narrative and atmosphere, writer-director Carla Simon paints a vivid portrait of a light-filled summer when a little girl has to face the loss of her mother and integration into a new nuclear family.
