Dris is an ex-con, living in the borderline between a decent and a criminal life. He has a regular and simple work and lives a simple life with his wife Lise and loves his family. However, his childhood friends from his Arab community, including his best friend Yanis, are mobsters and his brother is a small time delinquent. Yanis tries to bring Dris back to his gang, and uses his former lover Nina to seduce him, taking him to expensive places to feel the importance of big money. Dris fights against the temptation, but an event will route him back to Yanis' gang and in a fight between gangs with tragic consequences for the whole community. Written by

This is an excellent film. It's classic mob-drama. Something we've forgotten in this age of kung-fu fighting, wire-swinging, bullet-dodging one-liner screen-heroes. The acting is outstanding. Samy Naceri & Samuel Le Bihan are an impressive duo, in particular Samuel Le Bihan is very convincing as the violent gangster with a past he's trying to forget and a life he's trying to straighten out. Inevitably his past catches up with him...
