SYNOPSIS

After being illegally smuggled into France on the promise of gaining employment as a construction worker, with the hope to support his family in India, 15-year old Many (Harmandeep Palminder) finds himself unexpectedly handed over to the hands of the French State who by law, must enrol him in school and find him a foster family.

Two years later, Many has been successfully assimilated into the French Sikh community and is flourishing at school. Education has given Many a new-found sense of entrepreneurship that he uses to gain employment with the smugglers, setting him on a conflicting moral path that challenges his values of family, religion and his sense of self.
