In a popular suburb of Dakar, workers on the construction site of a futuristic tower, without pay for months, decide to leave the country by the ocean for a better future. Among them is Souleiman, the lover of Ada, promised to another.
A policeman intent on freeing a crooked businessman from a prison on Gomera, an island in the Canaries. However, he must first learn the difficult local dialect, a language which includes hissing and spitting.
An intense and powerful drama that shows the raw reality of life in French inner cities. At times breathtaking, LES MISÉRABLES is doubtlessy the strongest banlieue film since LA HAINE. Ly's debut feature is more than impressive.
