Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
The gritty, grungy lives of urban teens provide the focus of this taut drama. This film is the last in the "Tous les Garcons et les Filles de Leur Age" series which profiles the teen eras of nine prominent directors. This film is set in Paris, 1990. Zakari, though only 13-years old, is running for his life after he accidently shot a gang member who was teasing him. His older sister Max-Laure, a shaky drug addict, tries to help him. Meanwhile, Zak's brother Samy gets ready to play red roulette, a suicidal game of running a series of red lights at high speeds.
