Their bodies will forever bear the marks of their suffering. But thanks to an outing organized by the Association des grands brûlés, these burn victims get to enjoy a family day at the beach. Enduring the curious stares of strangers isn’t easy, but the desire to lead a full life, especially on such a beautiful summer day, is simply too strong. By sharing the inspiring stories of these men and women, Jeremy Peter Allen’s At the Beach invites us to embrace our differences. This film is part of the 2014 edition of the 5 Shorts Project, created by the National Film Board of Canada and produced in conjunction with Spirafilm, a Quebec cooperative dedicated to independent cinema.
