FOOTAGE OF EL KEF AND PROTESTS AGAINST THE SENTENCE. SOUNDBITES OF:-SARAH LAABIDI, DETAINEE'S MOTHER, "What is an unemployed person going to do? Going to a café or consuming these substances. What is left in El Kef? As my son says, the factories have closed and there is no job. When I return home and see him sleeping it breaks my heart. Even when I feel like telling him to get up and look for work, I tell myself, let him sleep, he'd better not go outside."-MOLKA BOUDERBALA, DETAINEES' DEFENSE ATTORNEY:"We have a problem with this law in Tunisia because three out of every four detainees are drug users. It is not normal. This law has become a punishment for young Tunisians."-ZIED GHANNEY, DEMOCRATIC CURRENT MP:"If the State creates a weak link in this entire process, which is the person who turns to drugs, it does not mean that we are going to destroy him and put him in prison, that we make him a criminal. But we say to him: we listen to you, we suffer with you. I'm not encouraging him to do it, I want to help him get out of that situation."
