For 18 years, director Claire Doyon has been filming Pénélope, her daughter with autism and Rett syndrome. Composed of DV tapes, Super 8 reels and HD archives, this film traces the relationship between mother and daughter through different stages - the shock of the diagnosis, the fight against it, the resolve, the acceptance and discovery of a different mode of existence. This deeply moving and intimate film is a tribute to the mother daughter bond and what our children can teach us.
