Abstract

A young Algerian boy comes of age in the spring of 1962 during the last days of the Algerian War of Independence. Ali plays with his French friends and delivers papers. On his journeys across the city, he witnesses violent conflicts including the bombing of a mosque and the murders of Algerian nationals. Such events prompt Ali to develop a political consciousness, which lead to fights with his friends.
