Ti Malice is a smart and witty young man. He is 18 years old and is from a stable, well integrated family in the community, and living in a small village in the outskirts of Port-au-Prince. Malice goes to school and his results are satisfactory. He is popular with his schoolmates. He is the positive image of the young Haitian balanced and efficient boy from a modest background.
However Bouki, who is the same age as Malice, is from a precarious family. He is in constantly facing failure. He is not in school. People affectionately make fun of him. His social integration is not completed. Bouki serves to assert Malice. The interaction between these two characters is the key driver for passing important educational messages.

Ti Malice and Bouki are part of the mythical characters of Haitian folklore.

Natasha goes to the school all smiles, she's happy. Bouki standing before the entrance to the school, denies her access, saying that education is only for boys. She tries to break through but Bouki pushes her away. Malice sees her weeping and asks what happened. She explains that Bouki has prevented the access to school for girls, whom, according to him, are more useful for housework. Malice goes to Bouki and convinces him that girls and boys have the same rights. Bouki accepts this reasoning, apologizes to Natasha while inviting her to enter the facility.
