A beautiful two hour love song to the power of memory, imagination, and the human spirit. The true story of the former editor of Elle Magazine, Jean-Dominique Bauby, who suffers a severe stroke and is left with a rare condition called 'locked in syndrome.' He retained vision and hearing, and his mind continued to function perfectly, but his body was almost completely paralyzed. He could not move or speak.
Through a painstakingly slow system of blinks he is able to dictate his memoirs through a translator. An incredible story that makes you want to get busy living and hug everyone you care about!
