During an improvised trip to the California desert, a self-conscious French girl studying in the US finds herself lost and, desperate for a sense of belonging, decides to act on her growing obsession towards her charismatic new friend. Soredia is a character-driven film that dives deep into the emotional life of a young woman in search for her identity and place in the world. Thematically, Soredia offers an in-depth exploration of female desire and intimacy, its multifaceted nature and specificity, in order to convey the unique fragility of female bonds and the extent to which they inform our identity as women. Lichen will be an explicit and visual motif throughout the film, a metaphor for the bond our main character is trying to form with her friend.
