  • Synopsis

    After hearing about the Bataclan attacks back in Paris, a young Frenchman finds himself on a nighttime odyssey in Dublin. From Paris to Sandymount, via Burgundy, Workmans and the Tallaght Luas stop, with lots of joie de vivre (that’s French for craic), this is a poetic punk portrait of coming to terms with where you’re from and where you find yourself.
