A young woman from the Central African Republic, whose knee is injured by a stray bullet, shows her agony on camera. Somebody in Germany sees the pictures and decides to get care for her. She therefore spends a year of her adolescence in a hospital room, with doctors, physiotherapists… and her desire to return to her home country. A surprising portrait overcome by an irresistible love of life.
