Sophie underwent genital mutilation in Africa at the age of four and then immigrated to Quebec. Twenty years later, having graduated with a degree in film, she gets a summer job in a travelling amusement park. When her boss finds out about her film background, he asks her to make a short video about his company. Sophie gets caught up in the game with her camera, filming everything ? even things that have nothing to do with her work. She films her friends, and also herself, and gradually she sees that she is creating something else -- that she is making a film about her own life and about the secret that she has kept since her childhood.
