Summary
Antoine Doinel is a young Parisian boy who is neglected by his derelict parents, skips out on school, sneaks into movies, runs away from home, steals things, and tries, with disastrous results, to return them. Like most kids, he gets into more trouble for things he thinks are right than for his actual trespasses. But, unlike most kids, he gets whacked with the big stick. He lives in a Paris filled with dingy flats, seedy arcades, abandoned factories, and workaday streets. Paris is a city that seems big and full of possibilities only when seen through the eyes of a child
