Over 21 families have come here from Algeria to escape the civil war during the mid-60's. The real story, though, are the children who must now fight for an education and stability in this new country. Omar is one of the lucky ones: he enjoys school and will find assimilation easy. But his friend Hacene is less secure, and begins to side with those who accuse Omar of being a disgrace to his identity, of selling out and becoming French. Then comes the news that Chaaba is to be torn down.
