"Drame de guerre. En 1943, l'armée française, repliée et affaiblie par l'Occupation, recrute dans les colonies africaines de jeunes soldats afin d'engager avec eux le combat de la dernière chance contre les Allemands. Embourbés dans la misère, Saïd, Messaoud, Yassir et Abdelkader s'enrôlent dans l'espoir d'améliorer leur condition et de fouler pour la première fois le sol de la mère patrie. Or, à leur arrivée en Italie, où s'amorce le long périple qui les conduira jusqu'en Alsace, les jeunes soldats mal préparés constatent que la misère les suit, et qu'aux yeux des Français ils demeurent des indigènes. Ainsi, Abdelkader, le seul du lot à savoir lire et écrire, passe de l'espoir au désespoir en voyant son rêve d'être promu sergent compromis par le favoritisme de l'état-major à l'endroit des pieds-noirs. Dans les rangs, la révolte gronde."--Médiafilm

1 edition published in 2002 in French and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is the very first film to penetrate the creative universe of the choreographer, following the elaborative phases of the piece, those special moments when experimentation is the impetus for creation
