Les enfants du soleil

Directed by Jacques Séverac
Morocco, France, 1962


A little fellow has set his heart on buying a sewing machine for his mother. Like the other shoe-shine boys, his goal of saving up money is almost impossible to meet yet after much work, he is finally able to get her a machine. Sadly enough, his triumph is short-lived when the machine breaks.
