Imagination as a refuge from the woes of adolescence

Naomi, a shy and reserved teenager, sees her life turned upside down when her mother decides to move to another
city to live with her boyfriend. She now has to deal with a dilapidated house, an unbearable stepfather, and, to cap
it all, a new school. It’s a nightmare for Naomi who can’t figure out how to fit in with her new classmates.

Life gradually loses all interest for Naomi, until the day when her grandmother gives her a rather unusual kaleidoscope as a present. When she looks through it, she sees doors open onto unknown and fabulous worlds. She sees trees with a thousand secrets, fantastic and dangerous creatures, unfamiliar nature whose exotic scenery is constantly changing... Naomi escapes for hours on end into these magical worlds.

But is fleeing the reality of one’s life really the right solution? Naomi will have to find other means of escape
to avoid the risk of losing even more.
