Kevin is a child who runs away, breaks things, cannot speak, has a partly cut-off ear. The type of autism he suffers from is said to be so severe that most institutions refuse to care for him. The filmmaker has been visiting him regularly with her video camera since he was 14 years old; now he is 18. The film follows him from one living situation to another, without any certainty about the future, and invites us to approach an entirely different relationship to the world.
