Jean is a 6 year old little boy, ready to go into his first grade. Soon he’ll be able to read and write… so he might be able to read the postcards that his mom sends him from all over the world. Mom is never there, Jean knows very little about her. But the postcards he receives, which are read to him in secret by his neighbour Michelle, come from far away countries: America, Switzerland, Spain, even from Africa… In his mind Jean makes up the wildest stories to fill in the absence gap.
