Synopsis:
In a small town in Morocco, a Belgian vet gives Walloon language lessons to the women that assist him in a small hospital for animals. Faced with this bizarre spectacle, legitimate questions are raised as to what motivates this man and his students. Walloon is apparently a dead language, spoken less and less and which at the same time is strangely experiencing renewed interest, often even being the subject of somewhat crazy projects. By following the steps of several people engaged in the Walloon way of life, we bring people’s attention to a resistance movement that has emerged naturally faced with the risk of seeing the Walloon language disappear. Walloon, Breton, same struggle?
