Despite being the first to defend the values of openness and tolerance embodied by the Left in this period of presidential elections, Charles doesn’t want to think his own son is different.
Charles throws Selim off the site and reports his behavior to his father. By way of reprisal, Selim gets his own back on Victor. He doesn’t want to go against the expectations of his family or society. Instead, he rewrites history. At high school, the rumor starts to spread that Victor is a faggot...
