  2. L'importante tradition de l’éducation islamique au Sénégal s’est développée de manière perverse. Cinquante mille élèves de l’école coranique (talibes), des jeunes garçons âgés entre 4 et 15 ans, sont exploités dans des conditions qui ressemblent à de l’esclavage. Les enseignants de l’école coranique les obligent à mendier dans la rue. Ils souffrent d’abus physiques graves et de négligences. Suivant l’équipe de l’ONG locale populaire, « La maison de la gare », dans ses efforts quotidiens pour trouver des solutions aux conditions de vie terribles des garçons, le documentaire présente de manière poétique la nature et les circonstances de la souffrance de ces enfants.
