In April 2018 the Leu family presented an unusual exhibition of artworks by 21 of its members, including the children. This documentary chronicles the project, from its beginning in an old farmhouse in the Jura mountains of Switzerland, to its opening in The Lieu Unique, a center for contemporary culture in Nantes, France.

The title of the exhibition was “Art Leu Family: Caresser la Peau du Ciel” and the paintings and drawings were hung in the wall-to-wall style of a 17th century French art salon. The soundtrack of original music was created by Ajja Leu for the film.
