It is the 1984-1985 school year and Riyad starts school. While in the first part (1978-1984) the little hero traveled with his family between Libya, Brittany and Syria, the second part is mainly about life in Syria. Riyad learns to read and write Arabic, discovers his Syrian family and new friends, and although he is still blond and spends a two-week holiday in Brittany, he wants to become the perfect Syrian. The backward and conservative Syrian countryside, a harsh school in Ter Maaleh, shopping on the black market in Homs, bloated dinners with a cousin, a megalomaniac pro-regime general, walks through ancient Palmyra: in this work we dive deep into the strange everyday life of the Satouff family, influenced by life under the dictatorship of Hafez al - Assad.
