The ferocity of a mother’s love trades the battle for the path of peace.

For 18 years, director Doyon has been filming Pénélope, her daughter with autism and Rett syndrome.

Composed of DV tapes, Super 8 reels and HD archives, the film traces the relationship between mother and daughter through different stages – the shock of the diagnosis, the fight against it, the resolve, the acceptance and the discovery of a different mode of existence.

This deeply moving and intimate film is a tribute to the mother-daughter bond and what our children can teach us.
