Orked, an adventurous, self-confident 10-year-old girl living in a small village in Malaysia, continually battles to be taken as seriously as the boys who surround her. When 12-year-old Mukhsin comes to stay for the summer holidays they find themselves becoming close friends.

Yasmin Ahmed’s gentle feature contains some wonderfully captivating performances from her young cast and manages to capture both the humour and emotions of her young characters in a deft and un-patronising manner.
