“Ly and Gederlini weave in keen analysis about political manipulation, structural violence and community organizing — a perceptiveness that makes Les Indésirables resonate.” — The Hollywood Reporter

Haby, a young French woman of Malian origin who is deeply involved in the life of her community, discovers the redevelopment plan for her working-class Parisian suburb. Led behind closed doors by Pierre Forges, a young doctor thrust into the role of mayor, the plan calls for the demolition of the block where Haby grew up. Together with the inhabitants of the building, she embarks on a fierce battle to prevent the destruction of her neighbourhood and expose the corruption that lies behind this nefarious plan.

Academy Award nominee Ladj Ly follows his internationally acclaimed debut Les Misérables with another incendiary, deeply personal and powerfully political portrait of a community struggling to find a way and a place to belong.
