Les sourires de Sophie

Summary of the work: 

Gabriel is 10 years old. His world collapses when his best friend turns his back on him. Her mother, Valentine, tries to find a balance between her private life and her professional life in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 

Their home is on the verge of implosion until the day new neighbors come to settle next to them. With patience and intelligence, the neighbors supported by the child’s teacher will inspire the Mother and her son to transform themselves from the inside by sharing with them another way of being in the world!
