A warm, compassionate documentary about the youths in the New Arrival class in Paris, France! We get to know a number of these wonderful young people, working hard to learn French, and adapt to the new French culture! The Documentary introduces us to their personal stories, their various cultural backgrounds, and own unique talents!

This Documentary will touch your heart!
