Abbas, a college professor and father of two, seeks political asylum in France after fleeing the civil war that has raged in the Central African Republic since 2013. Widowed when his wife died attempting to escape the country with him, he now works on a market stall in Paris and is dating his co-worker Carole, while also looking after his two young children. Despite lacking documentation Abbas applies for asylum but his anguish at the French immigration system grows as his plight becomes more desperate.
