This is the story of a Parisian who is ill and who wonders whether he is going to die. His condition makes him look with new eyes at all the people he encounters. As he faces death, his life, the life of others and that of the whole city suddenly take on a new significance. Market gardeners, a baker, a social worker, a dancer, an architect, a homeless person, a university professor, a model and a Cameroonian illegal worker...All these people, whose lives are very far apart, are brought together in this city and this film. You may think that they are nothing extraordinary but, for each one of them, their life is unique. You may think that their problems are insignificant, but for them, they’re the most important problems in the world.
