Ne Me Libérez Pas Je M'en Charge

Loading...
Michel Vaujour, old robber, always preferred escape to prison, adventure to submission, freedom to law. Within 30 years, he has spent 27 years in prison - including 17 in solitary confinement.- and he will escape five times before getting conditional discharge in 2003. If this life has often exposed him to the worst, it has also brought an incredible face-to-face with himself. Over time, this headlong rush became an inner ascent, an outline of philosophy in which he had to overcome a certain sense of himself, the life and others. --
