About this movie

Condemned to six years in prison, Malik El Djebena cannot read nor write. Arriving at the jail entirely alone, he appears younger and more fragile than the other convicts. He is 19 years old. Cornered by the leader of the Corsican gang who rules the prison, he is given a number of "missions" to carry out, toughening him up and gaining the gang leader's confidence in the process. But Malik is brave and a fast learner, daring to secretly develop his own plans... 2009, 2010 Why Not Productions, Chic Films and Page 114. All Rights Reserved.

Took my niece to get an ice cream and she saw the vending machine that sold DVDs. . . since it was only $1, i decided to get one as well. TX doesn't offer much for those bilingual in French. So, when I saw the title wasn't translated, I was overjoyed! *Everything about this film is brilliant-the acting, plot, screenplay all came together to take the viewer on a wild and unexpected ride . . . you will definitely enjoy it !!
