Synopsis: Summer 2016, Paris, refugees are camping in the Stalingrad district. The film follows their daily life and reveals a hidden part of the city, as they face controls, round-ups, police raids, fencing. How can you live in a space that prevents you from existing? The camera follows Souleymane, a young refugee from Darfur, whose poems transfigure the violence of the situation.
