Sobre o filme

Condenado a seis anos de prisão, Malik El Djebena não é capaz de ler nem escrever. Ao chegar à prisão aparenta ser mais novo e mais frágil do que os outros reclusos. Tem 19 anos. Rapidamente cai no enredo de um gang de prisioneiros Corsas, o que faz prevalecer a sua lei dentro da prisão. O jovem aprende depressa. No decurso das suas “missões”, fortalece-se e ganha a confiança dos elementos do grupo. Mais depressa ainda, Malik usa toda a sua inteligência para desenvolver discretamente o seu plano.
