Synopsis

Documentary director and mother with a daughter, I want to solve the problem regarding my daughter’s toe walking through making the documentary. I approach the mothers of disabled children with a camera, in the hope of healing my wounded heart and anxiety when I could understand the feeling, the life with complications and the process of accepting their disabilities that they confess.

The documentary film is comprised of the interviews with the mothers of disabled children, the podcast that they produce together with the director, and the reading performance that deals with the whole process and comment on it.

After completing the film, could I accept my child's toe walking for what it is?​
