In BAD SEEDS, a small boy's entire family is killed in an unnamed Arab country (possibly Iran) by invading armies. In his youth, Wael (Kheiron) survived by his wits, sometimes as a pickpocket, other times by pretending to be blind and begging. He's taken off the streets by a caring nun and is educated in an orphanage until he moves to Paris. He and his adoptive mother, Monique (Catherine Deneuve), run scams, fleecing gullible passersby until one victim, Victor (Andre Dussollier), recognizes her from long ago and makes them go straight. Victor runs a program for kids in trouble at school. He's in a bind and reluctantly puts Wael in charge of his group of troubled kids. Wael breaks through their insolence and protectiveness, earns their trust, and begins to teach them -- about life, about useful skills, and about their harmful prejudices.
