Kid With a Bike
12-year old Cyril is “temporarily” placed in a foster home until his father can solve his problems. In fact, Guy is weak and immature and does not have enough courage to tell his son the truth: “I don’t want you, I can’t cope”. Cyril won’t give up on the idea of returning to his father; however, before long he has another chance at life outside the orphanage. Lovely Samantha who owns a hair salon, begins to take Cyril home for the weekends. During these visits, the fragile relationship between them which needs to grow into a confident bond, is put through a series of tests and challenges. In this realistic story of an ordinary boy, indifference and exploitation are up against human reciprocity and love.
