Lucy, go see.

Lucy Pilgrim is like her name evokes: light and travel. A rebellious and whimsical teenager, she leaves her village of Iowa to embark on an international modeling career. Her adventures take her from New York to Tokyo, Barcelona, Hong Kong and finally Paris before bringing her back to her roots and to dark family secrets.

Lucy, go see is the story of an initiatory quest, a journey towards freedom but also towards the acceptance of her past and her own desires.
