In Paris in 1941, Younes is a young Algerian man who came to Paris a few years earlier seeking work and ends up making a good living selling goods on the black market. When the Nazis occupy the city, he is coerced into informing on the Paris mosque who are believed to be supplying false papers to Jewish families.
