Fresh out from a juvenile detention centre, Arnaud longs for just one thing: unconditional freedom. The energetic young outsider, who grew up trapped between social housing and foster families, leaves France and fights his way on the streets of Spain. Soon, poverty and loneliness take over, but Arnaud is a guy who bounces back. He resolutely follows his path, which leads him all the way to the Peruvian wilderness. Filmmaker Laure Portier paints an intimate portrait of her younger brother searching for his place in society.
