Release Date: September 11, 2007
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Foreign
In North London, a shady dealer lives an undisturbed existence. But the arrival of a ten-year old boy changes all that. The boy is apparently gifted with unnatural powers. Little miracles start to happen and the boy, whether he just brings luck--or is an angel sent by God--turns life in the neighborhood upside down. The jealousy of those who are unable to take advantage of his powers turns ugly and violent. Worse, a kind of malaise spreads that spoils longstanding loves and friendships, bringing madness and death.
