    • Synopsis
    • A sensitive portrait of Sabine Bonnaire, a 38-year-old autistic woman, filmed by her closest sister. The film tells her story through personal footage filmed by the actress over a period of 25 years, and her life today in a suitable facility. After a tragic five-year stay in a psychiatric hospital, Sabine found a new lease on life-even if these capacities remain altered-in a home in the Charente region. The film exposes the penury of specialized institutions and the dramatic consequences they can lead to.
