EN - Rita is filled with joy when news comes that her 26-year-old son Dennis will be released. Dennis, who has learning difficulties, has been serving a prison sentence for the alleged rape of a young girl. But some people in the neighbourhood are not happy about his homecoming. Barbara, the victim’s sister and mother of an eight-year-old girl, is the most combative opponent; but Rita fights like a lioness for her son’s rehabilitation. Finally she succeeds in transforming the community’s fury into a united struggle for a humane future for her beloved son.

FR - Rita est comblée de bonheur lorsqu’elle apprend que Dennis, son fils de 26 ans, va être libéré. Ayant appris de ses erreurs, Dennis a purgé sa peine de prison pour un viol sur une fille mineure. Cependant, le voisinage est tout sauf heureux du retour à la maison de Dennis. Barbara, la sœur de la victime et maman d’une petite fille de huit ans, est sa plus féroce opposante. Mais Rita se bat comme une lionne pour la réhabilitation de son fils. Finalement, elle réussira à contenir la fureur de la communauté dans un combat unis pour un futur humain pour son fils qu’elle aime tant.
