Louis is a 12-year old boy who lives in Sidi Ifni, a small town in South Morocco. He’s a happy child who really loves his family. He loves the sea, he loves to laugh, to learn. One day, his manic-depressive father tells him a secret. This will turn his world upside down and will make him a different person. His childhood evaporates, his innocence is gone. As of now, he will be an angel. A guardian angel who can’t fly. He’s an angel at sea.
