We are taken deep into the enclosed world of Maud Mannoni, a specialist care home for neuro-diverse adults which at the end of the 1960s, devised an experimental structure for autistic and psychotic children, those with learning difficulties, and adults affected by incurable mental disabilities. A film that makes a case for the importance of touch and connection, director Edmond Carrère's powerful, eye-opening film explores the perspectives of patients and carers alike.
