“La faute à Fidel! / Blame it on Fidel!”

In this French film, 9-year-old Anna inhabits a pristine world. Living with her wealthy parents and brother in a lovely Parisian mansion, Anna attends a private Catholic school and excels at religion class. But when her bourgeois parents, Fernando and Marie, develop radically left-wing ideology, little Anna is forced to abandon the life she once knew and learn to face the world on her own.
