    Meursault is taken to the courthouse early on the morning of his trial. In America and the West, illness is war; we strive to eradicate it from our bodies and lives. After the movie they spend the night together. Meursault also runs into his neighbor, Raymond Sintes, who is widely rumored to be a pimp.

    He sleeps for almost the entire trip. Stoller provides a view into the ancient practices of sorcery, revealing that as an apprentice he learned to read divining shells, mix potions, and recite incantations. The situation had grown heated and yet tired—the conversation was going around in circles. The findings were cast as a sober reckoning for a country whose media was committed to a different storyline. The following Saturday, Marie visits Meursault at his apartment.

    As a result, their efforts helped set the foundation for equal rights among blacks for generations to come. The director allows Meursault to see his mother, but Meursault finds that her body has already been sealed in the coffin. The following day, Monday, Meursault returns to work. Joining the school mid-year I was the stranger that came in knowing nothing about how the school worked.
