An unfiltered and authentic look into the lives of people with intellectual disabilities, living in a house on the edge of a beautiful forest, just north of Paris. Like countless others, Philippe, Michel, Andre and Patrick were rejected as ‘idiots’ and locked away in violent asylums in their youth. But in the 1960s, philosopher Jean Vanier secured their release, and set up home with them. He came to realise that they knew something the rest of us are forgetting: what it is that makes us truly happy.
