Diagnostiqué d’un cancer de la prostate, l’artiste canadien Max Dean entreprend un projet créatif obsédant, réparer les mannequins d’un parc d’attractions abondonné. C’est à travers ce projet intime et humaniste que l’artiste explore devant nous l’idée de se réparer soi-même et les autres avec comme seuls outils, l’art et la résilience.
