Expected 2019 – 26 minutes – France / Madagascar
In Madagascar, around twenty children are living isolated from the world in the closed universe of an orphanage of Tamatave. Thérèse, Maria, Lucy and Bozy, four orphan, fight every day to find happyness again and give a direction to their lives. Through a game, the tantara, they tell stories by giving life to stones. They invent then an imaginary world that talks about their dreams, their desire of freedom but also teir doubts on their own future.
Between morning chores, discussions with friends, lean meals, moments of relaxation and review, we discover a sensitive world where courage and solidarity is combined to anguish and hope to have,maybe one day, a better life.
