Synopsis: 

At just thirty four years old, the director Simon Fitzmaurice learns that he has four years to live. Instead of being shattered, he decided that his greatest defiance against illness would be to direct his first feature film. He drew strength from his deepest desires and despite total physical incapacitation, seven years later, he completed My Name is Emily (2015), directing it by only using his eyes thanks to Eye Gaze technology. This film becomes an ode to life where every second, every relationship and every smile has its importance. Can strength and the desire to live transform death ?
