    • Synopsis
    • Lin Aiyu, an undocumented Chinese woman, lives in the neighborhood of Belleville in Paris, with her teenage daughter Cerise. They are staying at Kieffer’s, a bedridden septuagenarian Lin takes care of in exchange for accommodation. To earn a living, Lin prostitutes herself, but she carefully keeps her business secret from her daughter.
      One day, a wounded stranger forces his way into the old man’s home. Pursued by men to whom he owes money, Daniel forces Lin Aiyu to hide him. In Lin’s view, Daniel is a threat but he could also be a life-changing opportunity. She offers him a deal which will give rise to a struggle in which power and desire will mingle with one another.
