Aurélie Laflamme - Somewhat Grounded

Aurélie Laflamme - Les pieds sur terre

It is the start of teenager Aurélie’s last year at Montreal College. This is going to be the most exciting and the most beautiful time of her life, so she believes. In reality, however, she is falling into a veritable chaos of feelings because Aurélie is still not sure where she actually belongs and what she wants. She compares her state of uncertainty with jogging, in particular with the moment “just before your foot touches the ground and you’re not sure where you will land”. She experiences this feeling of insecurity when dealing with boys, but it also relates to her career plans and to the relationship with her mother France, who does not only have a new lover but is also expecting a baby. To make matters worse, Aurélie has no idea how to spend “the rest of her life” after college. Her mother says she should choose a career she likes. But she therefore has to know what is really fun. There is only one “safe bet” in Aurélie’s life: Tommy, her best childhood friend. Tommy is always there when she is in trouble. Until he falls in love for the first time ...It is the start of teenager Aurélie’s last year at Montreal College.
