Simon is a young Lebanese immigrant living in the rundown suburbs outside of Paris. He starts the day like any other, heading off to work with his friend George and making them late. He also passes the day like he does most in that he avoids making decisions, large and small. But today is not the day for that. Passing up opportunities at work that could benefit him greatly, Simon comes up to a decision at the end of the day that will define the rest of his life, and this one is unavoidable.
