Reality – An African boy is talking about his social success in a new country, France: here, after having worked humbly and painfully, he has discovered the values of freedom, equality and fraternity. He says that this has been possible thanks to his grandfather who fought for France and obtained a medal for his military valour. But the reality is very different: his dreams have not been fulfilled and he finds himself handcuffed inside a cell.
