Synopsis

Claire, an awkward and shy girl, is vacationing with her older sister Zoe and mother Sophie in Spain. They are staying at a resort hotel in Andalusia. Sophie spends her days by the pool and shows a minimum of interest in her daughters. To begin with, Claire clings to her older sister Zoe. But the moment Zoe meets Michael, a boy her own age, Claire is left alone. By the beach, Claire befriends Amram, a young African beach vendor. She tries to help him, but unintentionally ends up making his desolate situation even worse. 
When her family plans a boat trip to Morocco, Claire hides Amram in the confined space at the stem of the boat, hoping that it is the right thing to do.
