French Version

Iqbal is a mischievous, happy little boy who divides his time between playing games with his friends, his adorable little goat and his superb drawings. One day, all that is about to change. His brother falls ill and he needs expensive, too expensive medicine. Believing he was doing the right thing, Iqbal waits for nightfall to disappear into town. In order to help his mother and heal his brother, he has thought of nothing else to do but sell his goat with, however, a lump in his throat. But nothing happens as he was expecting !

It was important to give this film a universal quality and to do this, we turned it into a fable about an imaginary country. For our aim is not to stigmatise some culture or another, but to tell young people the story of a child prodigy, a young boy, country-born, who becomes aware all by himself of how immoral it is to exploit children and who condemns the hateful and, unfortunately, universal practices of adult society.” M. Fusellier
