It's winter in rural France. It's snowing and visibility is poor. On the way to the divisional slam competition, the bus has to stop. Three young people find themselves trapped on the bus:
Amina, a newcomer from a French-speaking African country who refuses to assimilate.
Louis, the mestizo looking for himself.
And Zach, the assimilated youngster from a refugee family.
Accompanied by driver Ousmane, a permanent resident, we have to wait for the storm to lift, but that may take some time. Will they be able to cope with the cold and boredom? Can they find the keys to "living together"?
Levels: grades 5-9, for a maximum of 120 youngsters.
