StÃ©phane 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...
Inspired by the 2005 riots, director Ladj Ly explores contemporary Montfermeil, the same place where Victor Hugo chose to set "Les MisÃ©rables" in 1862. More than 150 years later, the similarities between today's angry, hoodie-wearing youth and Gavroche are only too clear.
