Abou, 13, is his father’s pride and joy. Unlike his 3 brothers, he’s “top of his class”.
Well, that’s what he pretends to be. Actually, Abou is more the king of lies and rigged report cards! When the first parent-teacher conference comes up, he will stage the biggest lie of his life: hire fake teachers to meet his father, while his real teachers will meet his fake father. It should be easy… in theory!
