Un Ange

A Feature film by Miguel Courtois

Produced by Ima Films

Release in France : 20/06/2001

    Synopsis

    An impossible love that begins in hell …
    Koskas, a policeman, lives alone with his nine-month old son. Léa is a drug dealer, that's what the judges said. In fact, she took the plunge out of love for her brother Samy, an irresponsible teen-age dreamer who draws angels on the school walls.
    Her sacrifice was in vain. When the story begins, Léa has just come out of jail. She finds Samy hooked on drugs again and still connected to the powerful and dangerous Zach, a local gang leader whose lover she once was.
    But Samy is shot by Koskas who was tailing him; he dies in his sister's arms. It was self-defense but no one was there to witness the scene. Driven by hate and revenge, Léa steals Koskas' car with the baby sleeping in the back, not knowing that this is the son of the very man who killed her brother … But in spite of the hostile relation between them, Léa and Koskas are very much attracted to each other.
    Léa finally discovers the horrible truth : then either she becomes Zach's woman and kills Koskas; or she runs off with Koskas, runs to the end of night never to come back again.
    The choice is between revenge or love. An impossible dilemma ... unless Samy the Angel shows her the way.
