Paule Baillargeon tells her life story through 30 vignettes presented in chronological disorder, often illustrated with her own illustrations that spring to life. The co-founder of Grand Cirque Ordinaire returns to her childhood in Abitibi, where she was raised by a demanding mother with depressive tendencies. She recounts her many battles for the feminist cause, which led her to co-direct her first feature, the 1980 film La cuisine rouge with Frédérique Collin.
