Synopsis

Edmond is not like everybody else. When his co-workers jokingly crown him with a pair of donkey ears, he suddenly discovers his true nature. And while he enjoys his new identity, it creates an ever-widening chasm between himself and others. With great empathy, Franck Dion tells the touching story of an outsider, illustrating the challenges of being true to oneself in a world filled with social conformists. Since he can’t bring himself to be what others expect, Edmond makes the only possible choice.
