The Girl Who Was Saturday Night

The Girl Who Was Saturday Night

Heather O’Neill

At birth, Nouschka forms a bond with her twin that can never be broken. At six, she’s the child star daughter of Quebec’s most famous musician. At sixteen, she’s a high-school dropout kicking up with her beloved brother.

At nineteen, she’s the Beauty Queen of Boulevard Saint-Laurent. At twenty, she’s back in night school. And falling for an ex-convict. And it’s all being filmed by a documentary crew.
