Storyline

Wael (Kheiron) a former street child, makes a living from small scams with his adoptive mother and partner-in-crime Monique (Catherine Deneuve). When this unconventional duo swindles the wrong guy, Victor (André Dussollier), an old acquaintance of Monique now in charge of a support organization for troubled teens, they have no choice but to become his interim secretary and educator in order to redeem themselves. Facing six willful kids determined to spoil all his efforts, Wael's own personal story and inventive tricks become the key to gaining their trust - and he soon realizes that he too is given a chance to heal his past and find his place in society.

Trivia

The Parisian scenes were shot in a college in Montreuil. Kheiron chose this establishment because it was dominated by the gray of the concrete and the green of the greenery. He wanted this college to be gray and closed to the world, and that Wael and the children travel through the floodgates, the activities, and what they live in that enclosed space. See more »
