When Stéphane joins the Anti-Crime Squad in Montfermeil – which is located in the suburbs of Paris, and is where Victor Hugo set his renowned novel Les Misérables – he is assigned to a team with the hot-headed Chris and the experienced Gwada. Immediately he recognises that tensions are running high between law enforcement and local youth gangs on the streets, with his colleagues doing little to diffuse these hostilities, often provoking those they encounter. When the trio find themselves overrun during the course of an arrest and their brutal response is captured by a drone, Stéphane’s loyalties are put to the test as his partners demand that he cover for them and their violent actions. Inspired by the 2005 Paris riots, ‘Les Misérables’ is an energetic thriller which provokes discussions around citizenship, law enforcement, and the role of the police.
