Mon pere, dans un lit d'Hopital, quelques mois avant de mourir, ici en France, m'a raconte sa traversee de la frontiere entre le Portugal et l'Espagne. Son emigration clandestine vers la France. A partir de cette petite histoire tres emouvante, et en m'appuyant sur des elements historiques et autobiographiques, j'ai voulu ecrire notre epopee familiale, decrire la vie a Freixo de Numao, un petit village du nord du Portugal, dans les annees 60 avant que mon pere ne parte "a salto", son arrivee dans l'un des plus grands bidonvilles portugais de France, celui du Franc-Moisin a Saint-Denis, l'emigration clandestine de sa femme et de ses enfants, et les trois annees pendant lesquelles nous avons habite ces baraques d'infortune. A travers ce recit, j'ai voulu refaire une nouvelle fois cette traversee clandestine des deux frontieres qui a bouleverse le destin de centaines de milliers de personnes, ce voyage sans fin qui m'obsede depuis l'enfance, entre le reve et la realite, entre le Portugal et la France.
