Thanks to a social worker's encouragement, a group of young people, all descendants of second generation immigrants and living in the less privileged Lausanne quarters, write their own screenplay and go all the way to Cannes to find a producer to finance their film. A very sweet road movie about the right we all have to dream and seek better opportunities in life.
