A young woman is given the lead in a film based on the dramatic events of her own life story.
A cinematic experiment in which a young woman is the protagonist in a film based on her life story. During the process, filmmaker Vincent Boy Kars and lead actress Leyla de Muynck negotiate how her story should be told. How does someone's personal story translate into narrative on film? And can drama, as a genre, help us better understand ourselves and the world around us?
