Synopsis

Born and raised in a suburb ridden by drug trafficking, Manuel and Driss were like brothers. As adults, they have gone down exactly the opposite path: Manuel chose to embrace this thug life, while Driss completely rejected it and became a cop.
When Manuel’s biggest deal goes terribly wrong, the two men meet again and come to realise they both need each other to survive in their worlds. Between betrayals and resentments, and despite their hatred, they renew deep ties around the one thing they have left in common: their visceral commitment to the place of their childhood.

Director’s Statement

This is a breathtaking thriller that will see treason, revenge and survival lead two fierce characters to question their loyalty, and their faith to each of their territory. It is served by two of the most iconic and brilliant actors of their generation, Matthias Schoenaerts and Reda Kateb, for their first performance together on screen. After the acclaimed success of Loin des hommes, Oelhoffen pursues a quest for a brotherhood that surpasses the destiny of blood ties.
