Growing old

a film by Géraldine Doignon
Full-length film
In development



In 100 days, ALI will be 18 years old. She knows it, she counted. But, for now, she got fired
from her last home and is placed in a shabby hotel in Brussels, the last solution of the services
youth support for ‘unfit’ minors. To eat, Ali receives restaurant tickets
and, in a brasserie, meets STELLA, a 45-year-old waitress, single mother of 2 little girls, who
will help and take care of Ali since no one does anymore.
GROWING OLD is the story of an encounter between 2 precarious women, in struggle, that we
invisibilizes, devalues, excludes. It is the story of a rebirth and mutual recognition.
