Together they begin a stroll, which turns into a way of life.
Alice tells and retraces the steps of his journey through portraits of people who have marked, recalls the figures of Geneviève de Gaulle Anthonioz, with whom he worked, and Father Joseph Wresinski, founder of ATD Fourth World.
the reader goes a story in which the encounter with the poor leads to a reflection on the universal human condition.
In a concrete way the reader is brought into contact with the problem, he sees "from within", discovering some truths that only experience can make people understand and sense it becomes increasingly clear hand in hand that the dialogue progresses.
A book of life, full of humanity, which we propose a new point of view and promises us that at the end of the journey we will encounter.
