Plot

— Pierre and Salah, from opposing social backgrounds, play a game of chess. However, certain injustices will affect the game. Evolving in a fictitious universe, the short film 'Salah' nevertheless deals with a subject unfortunately very real and present in our society: the inequality of opportunities. Highlighting the breakdown of the social elevator in a country where less than 5% of students in leading schools come from a disadvantaged background.
