Synopsis

Two men are made redundent on the same day in Paris: one black, one white. Their lives take radically different paths from this situation though. While the black man is blocked at every turn by the institutional racism of the system and is eventually made homeless, the white man falls in with ultra-right wing groups and joins in racist attacks. As Fascism and racism grow in France, and the country's colonial history returns to haunt it, the lives of these two men form a powerful index of national problems and injustices.
