"47" is Café Joyeux's handmade, animated stop-motion film co-created with the Down syndrome community.

Inspired by a true story, our film follows the life of Robert, a man with Down syndrome. Rejected by others as a child, he embarks on a personal journey symbolized by a raft. Along the way, he faces challenges that represent different life stages. In these scenarios, he recognizes that the world simply isn't ready to recognize his greatness and continues his odyssey. Finally, at age 47, he finds acceptance and purpose at Café Joyeux, a place where the world finally embraces his extraordinary abilities.
