Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this lively French drama, 17-year-old Muriel drops a bomb on her mother when she tells her that she is a lesbian. Muriel made this discovery while studying in Paris. There she found herself sexually drawn to her free-spirited and seductive pal Nora. Her friend can tell that Muriel wants her and so flirts shamelessly, even allowing Muriel to kiss and touch her. However, she insists that it is all in fun and Muriel keeps her deeper feelings unspoken. The poor girl suffers terribly when Nora gets involved with the sexy, black man Fred. To get even, Muriel tries sleeping with a boy. Eventually, after watching others like her, she screws up her courage and allows herself to express herself with another woman.
