The Stories of a Nation are that of all the generations that came to build a life in a new country : France. They narrate 150 years of the history of France, up to the point where today, one fourth of the French population is of foreign origin. Childrens, grandchildrens of Italians , Polish, Armenians, Russians, Algerians, Moroccans, Cambodians, Chinese… famous or anonymous, tell their familial histories. This fourt-part series starts when the IIIrd Republic, tramautised by the defeat against Prussia and the civil war of 1871, decides to build a nation. In every village, every neighbourhood, everyone must feel French.
