Le 34e film de l’ONF à être nommé aux Oscars®

Tiré d'une nouvelle de Mordecai Richler, ce film d'animation raconte le drame vécu par les familles où l'un des membres est devenu impotent. Les magnifiques dessins de la cinéaste marient magistralement sobriété et souci du détail pour insuffler vie aux personnages.
