In the past, as moral values have changed, documentaries have recorded the words of children of divorced parents, children of homosexual parents, and children brought up in single-parent families. So many different models have become commonplace and no longer raise questions. The new ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) children are now the pioneers. What is their vision of their atypical situation? How do they talk about this particularity with those around them?  With their parents? Their friends? With the outside world in general? What do they know of how they were conceived? How were they told? What questions remain unanswered? How do they see their future? At a time when a new style of parenting is trying to find its place in our society, this film aims to be a forum for those most concerned: those children who, today, are writing the first pages of this new account.

French narration / English subtitles.
