SYNOPSIS

Antoine, a social worker starting in a new special needs class, face the biggest challenge of his young career: to help a pupil successfully write a T letter. A simple task at first glance, but one that is a hard as climbing Mount Everest for Thomas, a teenager with a severe mental disability. A simple T – two lines, barely a second in everyone’s life. This letter stands for the beginning  of communication, a quest for identity towards which Antoine wishes to accompany Thomas.
