Louis is a happy 12-year old boy from Sidi Ifni, a minor South Moroccan town. He loves his parents, loves football, loves school and even his brother is OK. Then his father lets him in on a secret: He wants to kill himself. Louis’ entire world collapses. The “secret” pressures him into becoming a guardian angel and protecting his father where he can. A cautious tale of an abrupt end to childhood.
