    • Synopsis
    • Lola, a young girl with depression, is told by her mother to do something productive during the summer holidays. She suggests spending some time with Zack, a childhood friend who Lola hasn’t seen in ages and though reluctant to accept at first, Lola finally agrees to get her mother off her case. The two teens each have genetic conditions which affect their lives in different ways and as they spend more time together, they start to grow fonder of each other, though Lola hates to admit it to her mother. With the aim of bringing a bit of happiness back to Lola’s life, Zack sets out with the intention of recreating favorite childhood memories, as
      Lola said the last time she felt true happiness was as a child. Throughout this, Lola takes steps forward and backwards with her depression and her relationships with her mother and her sister as well as her old friends, are tested.
