Having fled the civil war-ravaged Central African Republic for Paris, a respected teacher (Eriq Ebouaney) now barely fends for his family by peddling produce. While he finds a loving companion (Sandrine Bonnaire) who helps him confront his past traumas, French bureaucracy proves a harsher mistress, impeding his bid for asylum and chance at a new life. Mahamat-Saleh Haroun offers a compassionate and visceral account of the unenviable lot of illegal immigrants struggling to maintain a sense of dignity.
