A young boy is the black sheep of the family. His parents are much older and his mother picks on him unmercifully, favoring his near-adult siblings. The long-suffering, henpecked father has withdrawn into his small pleasures of hunting and meeting with friends. Like the Cinderella story, his older siblings are pampers and the boy has to slave for them, wearing tattered hand-me-downs. While the boy finds comfort in her near-absent father's presence, it's not enough to quell the suicidal thoughts the child entertains to escape his misery.

DVD-R is in French with switchable English subtitles. Approx.87 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
