    Comme tout le monde

     

    In France, 20000 young people are homeless, this represents over a third of the total homeless population. However, this youth remains invisible, far from the media, political and intellectual spheres. 

    As their stories and testimonies go unheard, Julien Billion's film is an attempt to shed some light on this invisible homeless population and give them a voice. 

    The film protagonists and some of their entourage should be present.

    The proceeds will be redistributed to Emmaüs and to the non profit association "Comme tout le monde"
