Director Statement

Inspired by a true story, this film is a tribute to my colleague and friend who lived through this situation and pasted away a few years later.
Also, making this film is the hope to come out of my abyss, by expressing my frustrations and utopias.
In this film, I address several themes that are close to my heart, namely Childhood, the Single Mother, Ethnic Mixity. But also, I wanted to express my solidarity with the LGBT cause. These men and women who sometimes find it difficult to walk quietly in a public space, as lovers, without having to suffer the contemptuous looks, spitting and violence of society.

Solidarity, Hope, Tolerance... are values ​​that I wish to convey through this film and I have chosen to transmit them through a child, the formidable weapon to touch the heart of his target.

All means are good to help others. The way to do this may be misunderstood by others, but the person concerned always manages to decode the message.

Further more, making this film it's the hope to be able to see myself. Because if you can't see yourself, then you do not exist.
