A sparse hotel room in Tangier, a young woman talks about her mother and her brothers whom she adores, her father who abandoned them and about her adventurous journeys from Peru via French Guiana. There, she worked, fell in love, slipped into prostitution. Now in Morocco, she wants to get to France. Kelly is angry, she jokes, mimics dialogues, turns melancholy, then defiant, letting a tough and at the same time affectionate and imaginative personality shine through. Occasionally, the perspective shifts to people on top the surrounding roof or to the sea with Gibraltar in the distance. Once in a while we hear the quiet voice of someone, who remembers Kelly as if from the future, and wonders what happened to her and wishes her well.
France 2013, colour 67 mins. With English subtitles. Directed by Stéphanie Régnier. With Kelly.
