The day after a serious riot, Vinz, Hubert and Saïd wander the streets of Paris. After an incident the day before, the police assaulted a friend of theirs in custody, and tensions between police and the migrants and working-class residents of the Paris suburbs had increased. It’s the story of a man who falls from a 50-story building. As he falls, he repeats over and over to reassure himself: “So far so good, so far so good, so far so good.” But it’s not the fall that’s important—it’s the landing.
