Romeo Eleven / Ivan Grbovic
Things aren’t easy for a dark-skinned young man living in the French-speaking part of Canada. He was born into a family of Arab Christian immigrants and he also had to undergo an operation on his legs in early childhood. For the young man, his parents and everyone else, his conspicuous physical disability is regarded as a stigma. So he creates an alternative identity on the internet, where he passes himself off as an attractive businessman with a flashy career ahead of him. Will he be able to conquer his physical handicap and confront the inevitable social exclusion associated with it?
