"French director Jacques Doillon has a gift for exploring the secret inner lives of children... Petits Freres could be the second chapter of Ponette." -Time Out New York

Jacques Doillon, director of the widely loved Ponette, has crafted a wonderful follow-up, the gritty and authentic, yet also unexpectedly lyrical and buoyant Petits Freres.

Talia, a 13-year-old girl who is already battle-weary from fighting with her mean stepfather, runs away from home with her beloved dog Kim. She meets up with a group of four boys her own age who take a grudging liking to her - which doesn't stop them from secretly stealing and selling Kim.

Talia, distraught over the disappearance of her pet, strikes an uneasy alliance with they boys in an attempt to rescue Kim. Soon Talia and her gang of "petits freres" (Little fellas) find real friendship and common humanity in their harsh surroundings.
