Alphée sees the world in her own particular way, flitting around like a dragonfly. She is five years old and has a genetic defect that hampers her development. The education authority want to put her in a special learning institution, but Alphée's parents won't accept this. They leave the frenetic city of Québec and move to the Swiss Alps for a year. Here, they want to find out what sort of space and togetherness Alphée really needs. The film is a declaration of love from a father to his daughter and a plea both to appreciate the different varieties of pace that life can be lived at and to rethink what we see as normal.
