When his mother goes to jail and reveals the existence of his biological father, Benjamin sees a way out and agrees to live with this unknown man. This man is Karim, in his forties and living with his parents in a suburban ghetto in Paris. He is broken by life. Benjamin’s sudden arrival will test this family to its limits as he hurtles down a path of self-destruction.
