Synopsis

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...

Inspired by the 2005 riots, director 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.
