Catherine van Campen’s film follows 11-year-old Anne through the long and willful days of childhood as she reflects on her hopes and fears. Unlike most other 11-year-olds, however, Anne has Tourette’s syndrome, which manifests itself in involuntary tics and urges. The film is an affecting portrait of growing up different at an age of trying to fit in.

Director: Catherine van Campen

Producer: Joost Seelen
