Ludovic is waiting for a miracle. With six-year-old certainty, she believes she was meant to be a little girl - and that the mistake will soon be corrected. But where she expects the miraculous, Ludo finds only rejection, isolation and guilt - as the intense reaction of family, friends, and neighbors strip away every innocent lace and bauble.
