The face of Marianne defies the notion of age. She seems to bear the marks of several lives. Marianne uses her diagnoses and peers to shape a personal relationship with the psychological disorder that affects her. She creates and re- creates herself, performs and sometimes loses faith, but always gets back up. Captured in some instants of her daily life, she discloses her intimate cohabitation with the voices she hears. A portrait of a woman who fights to exist and live with a singularity that is part of her.
