During the 2005 Paris riots, rookie police recruits from the impov­er­ished suburbs wonder which camp they belong to: the French law enforce­ment or the young rioters?
2005, Paris is burning, or the banlieu, at least. Four police recruits are stuck in an anti-riot squad van that tries to leave the dangerous neigh­bour­hood as quickly as possible. Tension in the street is mounting, but also among the rookies, who were specially scouted for a rein­te­gra­tion programme. Why were they chosen for this mission? They wonder if their iden­tity and descent will protect them in the case of an ambush – or is a conflict of loyal­ties looming?
