Stephane, only just arrived from Cherbourg, joins the anti criminality brigade of Montfermeil in a sensitive district of the Paris suburbs.
Paired up with Chris and Gwada whose methods are sometimes "special" he rapidly discovers the tensions between the various neighborhood groups. When an arrest starts to get out of hand, a drone is filming every move they make.

starring Damien Bonnard, Djebril Zonga, Alexis Manenti.
Inspired by the riots of 2005, César nominee and Kourtrajmé collective member Ladj Ly explores contemporary Montfermeil, the same place where Victor Hugo chose to set "Les Misérables" in 1862. More than 150 years later, the similarities between today's angry, hoodie- wearing youth and Gavroche are only too clear.
