Les enfants de la mer/mère

Ostend's Ibis is a boarding school for boys who come from troubled homes or who have behavioural problems. Many of these children are missing one of the most important elements of childhood: the warmth of their families, but together they form a community. They eat together, sloop together and all wear the same maritime uniform. Because their home lives often lack structure, the school tries to provide them with an environment where norms and conventions are clearly defined. The youngest group of boys give their personal and often innocent impressions of the school and their own homes. Even though each of them has a story, they also have a story in common.
