An angel passes through the high-rise housing projects on the outskirts of Paris, enthusiastically reciting dialog from Marivaux. Her name is Lydia and she’s rehearsing “The Game of Love and Chance”, her class show for the school festival. Abdelkrim, known as Krimo, 15-years strong, falls for his classmate. He’s used to hanging out in the maze of the projects, loitering with his buddies, when suddenly he’s in love. But Krimo isn’t one for talk and he has a reputation to uphold. There’s only one solution: Marivaux’s words will say what Krimo dares not avow. In French with English subtitles.
