    • Synopsis
    • Condemned to six years in prison, Malik El Djebena cannot read nor write. Arriving at the jail entirely alone, he appears younger and more fragile than the other convicts. He is 19 years old. Taken under the wing of a group of Corsicans who rule the prison, he’s given a number of missions to carry out for them, toughening up and gaining their confidence in the process.
      But Malik is a fast learner, and with intelligence and discretion, starts to use his resources to develop his own criminal networks
