Bagnolet, on the outskirts of Paris. Two impressive building stand out against the sky: Les Mercuriales, twin towers constructed amid the streets, suffocated flowerbeds and low rent housing. In this metropolitan non-place, the stories of three tweny-year-olds interweave: a colored guard on her first night on the job, and two hostesses, one French, the other Moldavian, who become friends.
