Alphée has a rare genetic disorder that hampers her development. Yet she continues to defy medical expectations. When her parents reject the idea of placing her in a specialized classroom, they move their family to Europe for a year. Here, her father – filmmaker Hugo Latulippe – focuses on his fairy-like daughter's learning, in hopes of eventually integrating her into a regular classroom.

This film is a moving declaration of love from a father to his daughter. It is also the story of a gamble: stealing away for a year in order to try and change the course of events. An intimate film from the director of République: un abécédaire populaire (Republic: A Popular ABC).
