I grew up in a so called ghetto but from my perspective, this place, often perceived as grey, bleak and threatening - is fragile, subtle and warm. In this film I offer a glimpse into ordinary life in the banlieue. The intimacy of the conversation with my mum contrasts with the rigid uniformity of the modernist housing and, along with discrete observations of her neighbourhood, paints a picture of the private lives behind the facades.
