A science-obsessed teen battles negative assumptions about her body to reach for the stars in Marie-Sophie Chambon’s out of this world comedy.

Lois has a dream: to be an astronaut. With her fantastic maths and physics grades you would think she would be encouraged in this ambition, but the adults in her life cannot see beyond her weight and encourage her to seek a career closer to terra firma. When Lois takes to drastic measures in an attempt to become someone she’s not, she meets Amélie, Stannah and Justine – three girls who also struggle with accepting themselves.

A heartfelt ode to female friendship and teenage dreams striving to soar above the expectations of an often-cruel world, Chambon’s buoyant film humorously tackles issues of self-worth and embracing bodies of all shapes and sizes by championing the humanity of its genius heroine, magnetically portrayed by Laure Duchene.
