Ghorban is 12 – he is Afghan. He arrived in France alone; after a years-long, backbreaking journey. Child social services are taking care of him. He now faces an uphill battle – while under the scrutiny of cameras for 8 long years.
From a psychologist to foster homes, from school to his entry into adult life, Ghorban is trying to define his identity between Afghanistan and France. Will he become a French citizen? Will he try to find his mother back in Afghanistan?
