Review
Seventeen-year-old Claire Moutiers (Lola Naymark) has managed quite well since moving off her parents' farm and into a quaint studio in Angouleme. Her supermarket cashier's job pays the bills, but more importantly, it promises Claire enough spare time to design the intricately beautiful embroideries that are her passion. Claire's parents see little of their daughter, but they know she's OK. The "mysteriously vanishing" heads of cabbage that Claire regularly swipes from the family farm provide proof. She trades the cabbage for rabbit hides, which she integrates into her latest designs. But Claire's new life in her studio, her job at the supermarket, and the development of her art, are all jeopardized by a secret she's been concealing from her family, friends and gossipy co-workers: she's pregnant.
