Philippe Faucon's understated drama is a subtle and tender evocation of a romance that develops between a lonely Senegalese immigrant and a French divorcée.

Amin is a lonely Senegalese man who regularly sends money back to his family in Africa, but becomes involved with a divorcee (Emmanuelle Devos) whose home he's renovating. Their story forms the lynchpin of several tales exploring the French immigrant experience in the new film by celebrated director Philippe Faucon (Fatima).
