synopsis

What happens when people of various nationalities, from different social backgrounds, with diverse mother tongues, who, under normal circumstances, would hardly ever meet, find themselves face to face, seated on chairs, and expected to have a one-hour conversation with each other? Students, doctors, manual workers, entrepreneurs, some of them migrants, some others refugees, all of whom relocated in Paris from all over the world, meet every week in a small room at the Pompidou Centre for free French lessons. In chronicling these meetings, this profoundly humanist film invites us to reflect on what unites and what divides us, and on the sorrows that burden our souls after separating from what we used to call home.
