Twelve-year-old Sara has a warm and supportive home with her sister, mother, and her mother’s partner, and is taking her first steps into a new world of high school and boys. But when her father starts to take issue with her household, the possibility of having her family torn apart becomes real. A fresh and surprising coming-of-age film that doesn’t shy away from issues faced by many families headed by same-sex parents, Rara does so without resorting to message and resonates for anyone who has fought to keep their spirits up in the face of intolerance.
