Josée Boudreault, plus forte que l’AVC

This unique documentary sheds light on Josée Boudreault’s stroke she suffered in July 2016. With her strength of character, her positive attitude and her great resilience, we follow her in her life after the stroke. We will meet neurologists and other health specialists who will describe a stroke in plain words for us to get to know the different types, symptoms and prognosis. This story will let you maintain hope about the future.

“I’m not looking back, because life is no longer the same. I go forward slowly but surely.” Josée Boudreault

On July 2, 2016, radio/TV host Josée Boudreault was on the road for a family vacation in the US when she suffered a severe stroke which resulted in serious consequences. We will see how this beloved communicator will need to get used to life without the ability to read or write. Josée will need to get by with fewer words to express herself for the rest of her life.

Urgently repatriated to Quebec, she will undergo a surgical procedure that will save her life. The movie will tell the fight and resilience of this inspiring woman and her family, who supported her with all their power and love. We will see how Josée uses humour and self-mockery to get back on track, one day at a time. We will witness a second stroke which will luckily leave no further consequences.
