In the inner suburbs of Saint-Ouen, preparations are underway for the 2024 Olympic Games. This vast construction site is already shaping up to be the apotheosis of modernization and the completion of an almost finished remodeling of the former working-class town. The city's last major factory is about to be demolished, reflective office glass facades are gradually replacing the red brick of the factories, and surveillance cameras are securing a public space increasingly limited to traffic areas. In working-class neighborhoods, however, work is scarcer and less remunerative than in the past. Endemic poverty is on the rise, and the death toll is mounting against a backdrop of gang warfare. From one architecture to another, a new world is emerging: brutal and unequal. In the streets, in the apartments, the words of the inhabitants mingle with their songs, like oases of life as essential as they are ephemeral, healing individual and collective wounds. Conceived as a kaleidoscope, the film alternates sequences of the city's past and present, the words of its inhabitants and datamoshing images.
