Stripped. Deprived. Made bare. How do you go from a strict Sikh upbringing to stripping in bars across Canada? How do you navigate the distance between the girl you were, the woman you’ve become, and somehow find your way to the person you want to be? At the age of 15, THE VERY VERY GIRL makes the difficult decision to leave her traditional Sikh family – a move which frees her of abuse but leaves her feeling lost, alone and desperate. She tries to find her way in increasingly dangerous places, through sex, alcohol, and drugs, working in strip joints to make her way. THE VERY VERY GIRL follows one young woman’s search for freedom … and the many missteps she makes along the way. (The Very Very Girl Press Kit)
