Lenny is a wild and solitary 19-year-old from the projects north of Marseille. She expresses the hardships of daily life through rap, which is also her way of escaping from it. One evening, when she’s sneaked off to rehearse at the site of an abandoned building, Lenny runs into Max, a young Congolese woman without immigration papers, who is blown away by her voice and the power of her lyrics. From that point on, the two girls form a special bond. “Two winning performances deliver the necessary heart and grit.” -- Boyd van Hoeij (Hollywood Reporter)
