My First Summer is the movie every queer teen looked for but couldn’t find—an adolescent’s daydream come to life.
Claudia, having lived in social isolation for all of her 16 years, is alone for the first time after her mother’s unexpected death. Grace, a local teen, encounters Claudia in the woods and sets out to protect her from the outside world. Slowly but surely, Claudia and Grace share their own private worlds with each other, and a private romance begins to blossom unencumbered by disruptions from the external world.
Nestled in the delicate interactions of two teenage girls, My First Summer offers viewers the distant, pastel colours of a first childhood romance.
