    • Synopsis
    • Thierry is a professional actor. At the dawn of his 30-year career, he realizes that his destiny has gone far beyond his dreams: no one, starting with himself, could have imagined that he was going to become an actor. Because of his handicap, Thierry never managed to learn to read and write. He is part of a unique theatre company in France, the Compagnie de l'Oiseau-Mouche in Roubaix, which has been training people with mental or psychic disabilities to become actors for more than 40 years. Thierry, the narrator of the film, takes us on a journey of imagination, his perceptions of the stage, and his vision of the world, which for him is a permanent theater.
