'My crime wasn't doing something.
My crime was being something.
Being different in a way everyone else could see.'
Born into poverty in an isolated village in rural France, a boy grows up amongst hard men and women living hard and violent lives.
Bullied relentlessly for being gay, this is the story of Eddy's struggle to understand who he is, who he might become, and of his fight to escape.
