Synopsis:
Award-winning French actress Sandrine Bonnaire makes her directorial debut with a sensitive and very personal portrait of her younger sister Sabine, a 38 year-old whose autism went undiagnosed for decades and whose vivacious character was almost destroyed through years of inadequate care. Using footage filmed at Sabine's current care home as well as 25 years of home-movies, Sandrine paints a picture of her sister as a once independent young woman with special needs to an adult now in need of constant supervision. The contrast between the young girl and the dispirited woman five years later is a terrible and moving indictment of state institutions and the effects of misdiagnosis.
Now in a care home in the Charente region, Sabine has found a new lease on life thanks to proper care and the unwavering support of her family and friends.
