Thirteen-year-old Antoine Doinet lives in a cramped apartment with his mother and stepfather, neglected by them and unlucky at school. Living an intensely imaginative life of his own, he gets into trouble and is finally committed to reform school from which he escapes and runs towards the sea, which he has never seen.

...One of the BEST movied he has directed. It made me swear not to be as selfish as this mother is portrayed. I so feel for the character of this boy. It shows you the dignity he had as a child for leaving after the way his mother treats him, and how he was able to live by his wits for such a young age. No child should have to go through this. Truffaut is one of the great French directors and it is such a shame that he has not received the attention that he so richly had deserved. One should also watch how he did with FARENHEIT 451. It was excellent. Thanks.
