At the dawn of his 18th birthday, Malik received a letter from the French government asking him to choose the country in which he wishes to do his military service. However, he has always had only one nationality: French. Disturbed by this letter, he decided to go in search of his identity. As a young Frenchman born in Germany, beyond his papers, beyond his mixed culture, he discovers his history, that of this community tossed between two cultures. The story of his father and his grandfather Harkis. Travelling through France from the valleys of the Languedoc - from Rivesaltes where he discovered France - to the industrial cities of the North, Malik goes to meet those who have written with him the History of the community. From to the underprivileged neighborhoods of the North of the country. from Sofia and Malik SAA, 2001 France / 26'/ 2001 Image: Cyrille Renaux Sound: Sébastien Guisset Editing: Khalid Mamoun Production: In Extremis Productions and Les Films du Village
