Editor's Note
Roger, a teenage boy, works for his father's construction business, a company that employs illegal immigrants from all over the world. When Hamidu, an immigrant from Burkina Faso, is critically injured in a workplace accident he asks Roger to promise to look after his wife and baby. After Hamidu dies Roger's father covers up his death and hides the body. Roger is stuck between his promise to look after the unfortunate immigrant and his loyalties to his own father. LA PROMESSE is an uncompromising coming of age story and a look at a Europe in conflict over immigrants and their often harsh treatment. From the directors of ROSETTA.
