After their football training, they decide to go to this cave, a storm breaks out and quickly floods the cave. The children will be trapped for nine days without water or food. They will be saved by the meditation practiced assiduously by their coach, raised in a Buddhist monastery.

Young and old follow this adventure, panting and amazed to discover the power of meditation in the most painful circumstances. This teaching of life is transcribed here with a lightness and gravity that echo the childhood of the depths.
