Three Young Friends... One Last Chance.
Police viciously beat a 16-year-old housing estate kid they are questioning, leaving him almost dead. Responding to violence, teenagers from the estate turn their home into a 24 hour war zone. Among the people blinded by hate are Said, Vinz and Hubert, youths who survive on petty crime and dealing dope. In the intensely volatile environment, the teenagers find a chrome-plated Smith & Wesson 44 that a plain-clothes cop has lost. If killing a cop with his own gun doesn't express their rage, what will?
The French cabinet commissioned a special screening of this tragic story on its release, to see the problems of the angry French underclass on the streets of Paris.
