Rosie and her mother move into a new apartment building on the other side of town, her father’s sudden disappearance a mysterious backdrop for the change. Rosie stubbornly begins to settle into her new life, befriending Moussa a neighboring boy with a joyous, extended family that feels like home. Despite her newfound friendship and magical musings, curiosity about her father still looms in Rosie’s head. A visit from her Uncle only confirms her confusion, sending her on a quest for truth. In the middle of all of this, Rosie’s mother finds a new love interest in Moussa’s Uncle, a relationship that further stokes Rosie’s unease. Amid the flurry of childhood wonder, hints of very grown-up issues dance around throughout, a sweet film for children and adults!
