Two teenagers without jobs in Paris have nothing better to do than petty thieving in the transit system. Madjid, of Algerian background, lives with his parents and siblings in an apartment. It is hard for him to get a job because he is not a French citizen, something his mother refuses to do anything about because even if they are in France, she feels nothing for her adoptive country and has no intention of giving up her nationality. Madjid, being thus limited, must learn fast the way of the streets. His pal, Patrick, who is a French citizen, feels no need to go into any job that will pay him minimum wage. He knows he can do better stealing whatever he can to satisfy his basic needs. We watch him and Madjid get into all kinds of trouble. They have not discovered the profit in drugs yet, so their world revolves around the housing complex where they have become a pest most people would like to get rid of
