Les Justes de Camus

We are not part of this world ...
We are the Just Ones.

Take a look at our world. Where are the revolutions?

The moment when we came to this world, naked, the world was already formed.  Strange things were there waiting for this innocent little angel. Young one, where is the revolution?
Try as we may to prepare ourselves and be together as one, who would have thought what price we have to pay for our love!

The story of 'Les Justes de Camus' takes place in an unknown nation. With a corrupt regime, revolutionary socialists organize terror attacks in order to put a quick end to tyranny and to give freedom and justice to the people.

A group of young intellectuals take on the future of the nation, gazing at Utopia in the distance, only to find the real price they have to pay is just gazing back at them.

Can we of the present day understand what this price means?

About Albert Camus

Albert Camus. French novelist, philosopher, dramatist and soccer player. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1957. His works often take on the form of a trilogy, 'novel + philosophic essay + play.' With his emphasis on humanitarianism, Camus' philosophy often stemmed from real life experiences, confronting the ridiculous world. During the second world war, he joined an anti-nazi underground organization. Someone once asked Camus which one he would choose, philosophy or soccer. He answered undoubtedly, soccer.
