The second part of a portrait of the director as a young woman, built from autobiographical and metatextual brushstrokes, such as the inclusion of the family duo Honor Swinton Byrne and Tilda Swinton. After a tragic occurrence, Julie (Swinton Byrne) rechannels her heartbreak into her art, which has also been transformed into a personal fantasy as a graduation film. And as everything progresses, she grows.
