Alphée shares much in common with other five year olds. She likes to laugh, and to play and she has a vivid imagination. Unlike other kids, she has an extremely rare genetic disorder—Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome—that affects neuromuscular development. Her parents, filmmaker Hugo Latulippe and Laure Waridel, have witnessed Alphée defy medical expectations. They have such a deep belief in their daughter’s potential that they decide to leave their hectic lives in Quebec and spend a year in a Swiss village to provide Alphée with an integrated education in a progressive preschool.
