Brigitte is a painter. She is autistic. But, every Wednesday she models for Jean-Luc. With time, the distance between the artist and his model decreases. Facing Brigitte and her “strangeness”, Jean Luc slowly finds his own place.

While observing one another, Brigitte’s painting contributes to the dialogue, inspiring a confrontation in styles. For her, painting is an act of pleasure and jubilation. She is into colours, forms, movement and spontaneity. He is into lines, greys, steadiness and concentration.
