Dir. Romain Goupil in person! A tender, engaging and bracingly militant drama from director Romain Goupil: a story of youth, solidarity and contemporary France, with Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi and a terrific cast of children. A Chechan woman named Milana, recalls the story of her near-deportation from France at the age of ten and the plan her young classmates hatched to save her. Part of Rendez-Vous with French Cinema 2011.
