A boy suffering from multiple sclerosis. He spends his days between treatments, memories, imagination and his struggle to stand. A struggle fought with dignity, courage, faith and love for life.
A film on the will to live and on the private space of those suffering, on the innermost thoughts...
The Garden of Hope is the intimate space inside each of us, where we grow the flowers of Strenght, of Love and Grace in order to hold out against Life’s hard trials.
