A detention centre for young offenders in Marseille. Lakdar, a committed young social worker is looking for Sabrina, one of the young people in his care. Today the court will pronounce judgement on Sabrina’s past offences. At first she doesn’t want to go and then they are delayed. It’s getting late, but Lakdar is confident that things will work out. Sabrina is not so sure – she doesn’t even know what would be good for her. She needs more time and takes it. Lakdar refuses to give in. Their journey through suburban Marseille is an excursion into another world.
