Jelco, Justin, Rabetsy and Mamy have come to the economic capital of Madagascar Tamatave from different places of the country to look for a job. They do not have documents and represent internal economic refugees, which are very discriminated against. They work in a car wash station. Far from their families, they are subjugated as much by the bosses as by the residents which accuse them of being the origin of the violence in the neighborhood. Adrianaly describes a little community, giving voice to young men and offering them a glance of hope.
