A beautiful film adaptation of the novel "Eve de ses decombres" by Ananda Devi.

In Troumaron, an impoverished area of Port-Louis, the capital of Mauritius island, four youngsters tell us about their fight for their survival: Sadiq, the would-be poet, Eve, who prostituted herself as a child to obtain school materials, Clelio filled with his anger against the world, and Savita, 'the good girl' who wants to escape but finds all avenues are closed. Eve has a plan for her and Savita to get away. But it will go terribly awry, and its tragic consequences will lead them into a spiral of violence.
