Screen adaptation of Albert Camus' last novel, IL PRIMO UOMO traces back the events of an extraordinary character. The writer Jean Cormery goes back to his original homeland, Algeria, to plead for the idea of a country where Muslim and French can live along peacefully and in harmony. But in the 50s the Algerian issue is far from being resolved in a peaceful way. The man takes the chance to look for his mother and live again his youth in a difficult but sunny country.
