Synopsis:
They called them MENAS, Mineurs Etrangers Non Accompagnés (Non-accompanied foreign minors). They fled war, violence, misery. In 2013, more than a thousand came to knock on doors of our country. Supported until the age of 18, dreams, plans, studies were shattered when they were told to leave their country. Une si longue histoire is a portrait of seven young people balanced between children’s games, teenage dreams the anguish of adulthood. Because at 18 years old, you’re no longer a child. And without papers, one is no longer anything; one no longer exists.
