Winner, Betty Youson Award for Best Canadian Short Documentary

A filmmaker revisits her childhood pact with her sister and her struggle with anorexia as a Punjabi Canadian kid growing up in a small town in Quebec. Through a feminist diasporic lens, she explores eating disorders, identity and the quest for belonging beyond body image in this intimate love letter to childhood.
