Marieme lives with her family in the banlieue. The shy girl's parents are always fighting, the neighbourhood is ruled by boys and school is a cul-de-sac. But then Marieme joins a gang of three other girls and begins to skip school, roam the local shopping centres and skirmish with rival gangs. The shy teenager becomes a self-confident young woman pushing her limits ever further into dangerous areas. The coming-of-age drama's unusual form is carried well by its four amateur protagonists.
