Synopsis | Louis is a happy, carefree 12-year old boy who lives with his family in Sidi Ifni, a small town in southern Morocco. He loves his brother, his mother and father. He loves playing football with the neighborhood kids. He loves the sea, he loves to laugh, to learn. One day, his manic-depressive father tells him a secret that will turn his world upside down and change him forever. His childhood evaporates, his innocence is gone. From now on, he will be an angel. A guardian angel who can’t fly. An angel at sea.
