How does one live with schizophrenia ? How does one talk about it ? How would someone affected by the condition deal with medical professionals, with their family and with everyone else ? « The voices of my sister » is both a portrait and a personal account of living with the condition. The film takes the form of a personal diary compiling personal accounts from various people. The first one is a patient who has lived with schizophrenia for 20 years, giving a particularly clear-headed account of her condition. We then hear from those around her, her family, her friends and the medical staff treating her at the Sainte Hospital in Paris.
