A humanitarian worker measures the true impact of his actions…

Theo, a dispirited workplace humanitarian, audits a child worker at a cardboard factory, in a port city somewhere in Asia. He is impressed by young Malak’s maturity and grit. When that boy, the same age as Theo’s own son, disappears, he cannot let it rest. His quest for answers only raises more questions about the traps of structured help and acquired privilege.

An unsettling story quietly told by multiple awards-winning author Michèle Laframboise.



If you appreciate Jean-Christophe Rufin’s humanitarian stories, you will like Theo, a bumbling cooperant coming to terms with the real impact of his engagement.

Read Cardboard Boy to experiment our humanity’s harsh and ironic contrasts.
