Stéphane has recently joined the Anti-Crime Brigade in Montfermeil, in the Paris suburbs. Alongside his new colleagues Chris and Gwada - both experienced members of the team - he quickly discovers tensions running high between neighbourhood gangs. When they find themselves overrun during the course of an arrest, a drone captures their every movement, their every action...

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.

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.
