A hot topic might be overly simplified for some viewers in this first-time political drama by Stephane Kurc. Marc (Patrick Chesnais) is a leftist and leans more towards militancy than compromise in his work at a Paris television station. Unlike Marc, his friend Fran├žoise (Olivier Granier) is ambitious and has an obliging personality that nets him the shared directorship of a weekly current events show. Ready to help Marc out if he can, Fran├žoise gives him an assignment to report on an Algerian immigrant camp. The results are as freewheeling as Marc's opinions, and a small tempest in a teapot threatens to shape up into a more serious storm.
