‘Everything is back to normal’ announces the voice over the loudspeaker, following a disruption in the metro system. But what is ‘normal’? And for whom? Hubert, a poet, falls victim to racist police violence. In this hybrid animated short, rats find themselves in a society dominated by white mice: an allegory and trenchant observation. ‘Je marche, je marche’ – thus the poet continues on his path after the attack.
