A routine look at the indominatible spirit of impoverished young boys in Morocco, this drama by Jacques Severac also does not ignore the rather oppressive conditions under which the boys live. In one story, a little fellow has set his heart on buying a sewing machine for his mother. Like the other shoe-shine boys, his goal of saving up money is almost impossible to meet yet after much travail he is finally able to get her a machine. Sadly enough, his triumph is destined to be short-lived when the much-desired sewing machine is broken in an accident. Undaunted, the lad decides the only thing for it is to start again from scratch.
