Love can’t save all. That goes for every children in France, in Morocco, or anywhere in the world, including Murielle and Mounir. Including their one, and then two daughters; and then their third daughter; and then their fourth, quite predictably, a son. All parents know that simple–but often heartbreaking–true fact, they just choose not to tell their children the whole truth. So youngsters, please do plan your future, plan your lives. It will make your lives much better. It will save you more than any love you can get and you can give.
Sounds like a storyline from a family planning advertisement?

My Rating: 6/10
