From the acclaimed director of THE BEAT THAT MY HEART SKIPPED one of the most heralded films from the 2009 Cannes Film Festival and winner of the Grand Prix.
Condemned to six years in prison, 19 year-old Malik El Djbena cannot read nor write. Arriving at the jail entirely alone, he appears younger and more fragile than the other convicts. Cornered by the leader of the Corsican gang who rules the prison, he is given a number of "missions" to carry out, toughening him up and gaining the gang leader's confidence in the process.
