The film follows three children at odds with themselves and the world around them, at a time when more and more are being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Victor is 7. He hates ADHD, believing it’s something to do with his club feet. Martine is quick to become withdrawn and struggles with uncontrollable rage. For the most part, Marino keeps to himself, but easily becomes aggressive. Victor, Martine and Marino are in a special class in a normal school. The teachers and the parents decide to take part in an alternative treatment project focusing on the individual child’s challenges and possibilities, rather than relying on medical diagnosis. The film shows how the children make great strides over the course of a year, as the adults around them start to see each child in a new light.
