    • Adolescent dreamer Ibrahim lives in a housing project on the outskirts of Paris with his father, Ahmed, with whom he has a difficult relationship.
      Involved by his best friend Achille in an ill-fated shoplifting scam, he is busted by security and lands his father with an unexpected and sizeable debt, jeopardizing Ahmed’s career plans.
