At age 18, artist/filmmaker Olivia Barratier hitchhiked to Dublin, enrolled in art school and graduated with a diploma in art and design. This lyrical memoir film re-creates her odyssey from Paris to Dublin to America. Featuring her niece, Violette, reality mixes with her exquisite drawn diaries, her markings of hope and color in a sometimes-painful world. During her journey, she has to face her reasons for leaving. - Black Maria Festival, USA
