Lola Doillon, on what spawned the film project: "It came to me after I directed Majorettes, a short film recounting three small stories about teenagers. That shoot went so well and I so enjoyed working with those kids that I wanted to extend and follow through on that adventure in my first feature film. So I thought, 'What do these teenagers experience?' Well, they experience a lot of things for the first time - sexual stuff, emotional stuff. All of a sudden, they're learning to deal with things on many levels, especially in the love department. And that's all very hard to take in, to get a handle on. It's that flood of confusion that I find moving. We've all had that feeling; it's universal. I thought, 'That's my subject - those firsts.' "
