Samba came to France 10 years ago from Senegal. He plugs away at various lowly jobs in a bid to stay under the radar and avoid the authorities. Alice is a senior executive who has recently undergone a burnout, and seeks solace in charity work at the immigration centre. The pair meet when, in desperation, Samba seeks the charitys help to get the working papers that will allow him to stay in the country he now calls home. Both struggling to improve their lives, fate draws them together and down an unlikely path that will change them both irreparably. Combining humor and heart, Samba and Alices story is a touching, topical look at issues – both personal and within our society – but with a lightness and soul to melt even the hardest of hearts.
