SON OF BEN

by Guérin van de Vorst

synopsis

Imprisoned 3 years after a robbery Ben goes out of prison where he converted to Islam. Everything he wants is to reconnect with his son Samir. But Samir has not been waiting for him for a long time, and Nadia, his ex-wife, does not trust him. Mustapha, his new "master of thought", prompts him to believe that he will never find his place in this society, and exacerbates his sense of injustice. Ben tries to follow the rules of life imposed upon him by Mustapha when he meets Lucie, who does not help him at all to respect them ... From work of reinsertion into small recurrences, Ben will lead a fight to resist hatred, to recreate a link with his son, and to regain his dignity as a free man.
