And I want the world

Samba wants the world and nothing else. Soon to be 18, he spends his days dreaming and wandering around town with his pal, Éros. One day, the town hall offers them some work experience. For Samba, who is slightly autistic, it’s a chance to try out the working world. But the youngsters are sceptical. The new mayor is a populist with far right-wing tendencies. Louis Walter wants to turn the neighbourhood into his political stronghold. He aims to be President. Opposing him are representatives of the Cultural Left, Jacques Lascrime and Sandrine Rigal, who are organising the resistance. So far, so good. But in this neighbourhood, which is a home both to trendy shops and severe poverty, egos, desires, fantasies, and dreams contend with each other.

Everyone wants to win the world, each in his own way, no matter what it costs.
