Le chant des vivants

Synopsis

Every year, during school holidays, Anas, Egbal, Bailo and the others go to the village of Conques, in Aveyron, France. They are all survivors of Libyan torture camps. All of them have buried the memory of their exile and locked up the hell they have been through inside themselves. Thanks to music therapy, they will try to express their pain through one simple song.
