Synopsis

Hassan is a boy who lives on streets. His brother was accused of witchcraft and burned alive by his neighbours in front of his eyes. Hassan’s stepfather tells the boy that he has devil inside him, so he runs away in order not to be killed. Hassan carries a tape recorder with him: he uses it to tell us about his and other children’s life, as well as his beautiful country which still has dangerous traditions. And this is just one of the film stories.

When I was 8 years old, my mom told me that we were going to town for a traditional festival held by locals. Then, my mom, aunt and two neighbours took me into a very dark room. They gripped me savagely, put a piece of cloth in my mouth and circumcised me.
