Daiga, a woman from Lithuania comes to Paris with an old car, smoldering cigarette and little money hoping to secure a job as an actress. When her plans collapse, she gets a job as a maid in a hotel thanks to her aunt. Meanwhile, the city is on the edge because of a series of brutal murders that targets lonely elderly women. A vital role in the story falls to brothers from Martinique: drag performer Camille and musician Theo. Through the engaging storytelling, the director created captivating portraits of immigrants.
