"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 neighbourhood groups. When an arrest starts to get out of hand, a drone is filming every move they make." (Cannes Film Festival)Hide
