Paris is in chaos. Several bombs have exploded causing dozens of deaths. The streets are cut off and the city is in lockdown. Public transportation has shut down. On the brink of collapse, residents in the heart of the city invite those who are stranded into their homes. Julie also offers up her apartment. When she opens her door, she meets a young man who confronts her about her own prejudices. What happens when fear makes its way into our lives? From the outside, the cries of a wounded city are heard. Inside, we are witness to the silences, confessions, unexpected tenderness –and lies.
