A Child of Light

Lucas (12 years) has to keep Erwan (15 years) company, whose parents are gone away on holiday.

It goes rather badly at the beginning: Erwan defers on Lucas his spite to be put on the sidelines by his parents, and he treats Lucas like a dog, with humiliations and bullying, obliging him to live without clothes (like a dog) and to eat only bread and cheese. Lucas, understanding that Erwan is naughty because he is unhappy, takes all with smiling and indulgence, while proving that he can have some personality.

But one day, Erwan goes too far and maltreats Lucas so much, physically and morally, that Lucas spends one night between life and death. Erwan, understanding that he nearly killed the only one who had affection for him, changes completely his attitude and tries to make Lucas as happiest as possible.

When Lucas returns at his place, Erwan, although he adores Lucas now, takes the painful decision no more to see him again: he fears that Lucas, the Child of Light, should become like him while growing: a Child of Darkness, and that he does not want the see it... It will be his "punishment"...

This movie, based on a true story, shows that violence against innocents ones is a deadlock, and that it ends even up destroying his author. Something to meditate over...
