Storyline

A group of six friends celebrates loudly on a street in a ghetto outside of Paris, France. It is early in the morning on November 5, 2008. Barack Obama has just been elected as the first Black president of the United States. The friends discuss what, if anything, will change in society, particularly for the minorities of the world, now that an era of hope and change has arrived. The group divides when Yoan and Momo, who have yet to reveal their gay relationship, find themselves confronting the homophobic attitudes of their friends. The ghetto is collapsing under the pressures of the global economic decline - the butcher shop has closed down, replaced by a fancy supermarket built on top of a torn down community school. A confrontation outside their apartment building between the out of work Butcher, a French nationalist, and Hakim, the cool young leader of this group of friends, leads to a Hakim's violent abduction by the Butcher. Meanwhile, Yoan and Momo express their desires to live ... Written by Mayuran Tiruchelvam
