The Girl

In the summer of 1981 a 10-year old girl is left behind with an aunt when the rest of her family goes to Africa as aid workers. The aunt, soon courted by a man, leaves the girl with the promise to return “in just a few days”. The girl doesn’t tell anyone that she is now completely abandoned and the summer passes by. With sharpening senses she gradually discovers the often absurd and careless adult world.
