    • Synopsis
    • The consulting service is located in the Avicenne Hospital in Bobigny. It’s an outpost at the end of a corridor. A large room where sick men show up, bearing physical scars, and whose pain seems closely linked to the suffering o exile.They keep coming back here because they still harbor hopes that this place will give them the means to stay afloat,to survive the turmoil of their lives hitting rock bottom.
