Alphée has a rare genetic disorder that hampers her development. Yet she continues to defy medical expectations. In a moving declaration of love for his daughter, filmmaker Hugo Latulippe and his family steal away for a year, focusing on his daughter's learning, so that she can integrate into a regular classroom when they get home.

Alphée’s father’s letters provide a framework for the story; discuss the message of each entry. What can we learn about ourselves by watching Alphée’s journey? Notice that Alphée mentions Neverland right before her time in the classroom (63:45–68:30). How can school be seen as Neverland? What does Alphée have “that our world is missing” (71:15)? How do fellow students benefit because she is in the classroom with them?
