In a beautiful Parisian salon, a man tells his mother the marvelous and tragic story of his childhood, while leafing through the family album. Between two episodes of this « fiction », we see excerpts of six documentary films made twenty years later by the child who had become a man. The Documentary Filmmaker or a Novel of Childhood proposes, in the manner of Perec, two independent narrations, crossed chapter by chapter.
