It is not a documentary about this death. It is a ballet of souls lost in the middle of the buildings that only the camera is able to escape, suddenly flying up in the air and filming from above.«
Alice Zéniter

An apartment block »butte rouge« in the year 2002. Georges Mondésir is working on his car when suddenly a police vehicle shows ups, followed by an entire mobile task force. A short time later: Georges is dead. Friends and neighbours give their account of who Georges Mondésir was, how he came to die and what exactly they recall.
