One long night in an apartment block on the frontier of the suburbs and the city, between dusk and dawn : the last party in this borderline place... Seven characters meet , gather together and part. Each one of them is waiting for something. After this last night and last party, they will never be the same again.


"I had the idea for the film during a party in a squat in Montreuil. Firstly, I was fascinated by the architecture : the space, stairs and surfaces, the unexpected ways of moving between the different levels. The building looked like a ship and, as on board ship, the people who met there may or may not have known each other and revealed much more of themselves. Times are hard nowadays and fear is the only solution. At the same time, the film remains open-ended. There's an attempt to communicate with others, to do something. In this place, people aren't isolated but ask questions together. Even if, in the end, each one of them returns to his or her solitude. In the film, light is shed like a flickering flame, a flame of hope."
(Françoise Etchegaray)
