what the films


Samir lives in a popular city, in the suburbs of a large provincial town.
Between the boredom and the small bad hits to kill time with the buddies, his father trains him in plumbing. When he dies suddenly, Samir has no choice but to take over the family business to provide for his mother and two sisters. Fate, however, will decide otherwise...

One morning, following his sister to the municipal media library, he has a revelation: the photo of an American surfer from neighborhoods that resemble his own upsets his vision and broadens his horizon in a flash. There lies his future. 

From then on, he won't stop doing everything he can to make his dream come true, starting with the basics: How about learning to swim ?
