A film by Olivier Meyrou

2013 France - Documentary


Fabrice Champion was the star of a prestigious international troupe of trapeze artists. During one of his practice sessions, he crashed into one of his colleagues. In the accident, he lost part of his motility. Over the years, Fabrice tried different kinds of physical therapies. Thanks to his endurance strength, he was able to regain a part of control over his upper body. While teaching at the National Circus School, he meets with Matias and Alexandre, two young acrobats. Together, they try to re-invent acrobatics, they create and rehearse the first choreographies. They grow closer. For Fabrice, it is the beginning of another way of dealing with his paralysis. For Alexandre and Matias it is the beginning of a new approach of both acrobatics and life.
