In this BAFTA-nominated documentary, filmmaker-composer Gary Tarn relays the remarkable emotional journey of Hugues de Montalembert, a French artist and writer who lost his sight in the wake of a violent mugging and went on to reclaim his life and his independence. Combining de Montalembert's narration with Tarn's thought-provoking imagery, the film is as much an inspirational story as it is a sobering study of faith and loss.
