EVERYDAY HEROES is a feature length documentary about the power of life and resiliency. The documentary features five children who are willing to share with us their everyday life, their doubts and their joys.
These children among all children have a particularity. Imad, Ambre, Charles, Tugdual and Camille have been diagnosed with serious pathologies, which make them both very mature and self-aware of the power of now. But above all, they remain children.
Anne Dauphine Julliand, the director, has been able to capture the decency and innocence of these amazing kids, who really stand among every day heroes, and share with us a lesson of life.
We believe this movie is made to change preconceived ideas, upon life, childhood, resiliency and the power of now.
