A teenage girl is made pregnant by a man on the night before he is to go to Algeria to work in construction. The only word she thereafter receives from him is written on the back of a postcard with three camels on it. Her mother, who also was illegitimate, gives her money for an abortion,

which the girl uses instead to check into a hospital and have the child. After an amusing and unsuccessful attempt to pierce the bureaucracy and list the father's name on the birth records, she throws the postcard in front of a portrait of her grandmother, who also was illegitimate. A lot of

laughs in this one for those with a mordant sense of humor.
