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

because shot a 'beautiful' gangster movie. There is nothing beautiful in this movie: lighting is flat and the composition of the frames are uninteresting at best. It's a mess because the story is totally inconclusive. After watching it on the big screen all that's memorable is a monster shoot out at the end. Sound design is unbearable with all its bigger than life gunshots and door slams. The production tried to make a Hollywood style epic but failed miserably.
