EN - Jef, an autistic 18-year-old, has suffered from a severe stutter for most of his life. With his parents he has tried many cures but all in vain. Now he will confront the problem again helped by Gert, his new therapist (and a former stutterer himself). Jef’s determination to overcome his condition means he may succeed in other things, too.

FR - Jef, un jeune de 18 ans atteint d’autisme a lourdement souffert de bégaiement. Avec ses parents, il a entrepris de nombreuses tentatives afin de soigner ce mal, en vain. Des années plus tard, il s’apprête à affronter ce problème une nouvelle fois, avec l’aide de Gert, son nouveau thérapeute (lui-même ancien bègue). Ensemble, ils essaieront de vaincre ce problème. Maintenant que Jef sent désormais qu’il a une chance d’y arriver, il réussira peut-être dans d’autres domaines.
