Noir chronicles the lives of four people living in a poor neighborhood and aspiring to freedom and happiness. A neighborhood plagued by poverty, drug trafficking, violence, and gangs wars.
Kadhafi, a 26 year-old aspiring Algerian rapper and ex-member of a street gang, just got out of prison. His goal is to steer clear of troubles. Will he succeed? Fleur, a 17 year-old Haitian mother who is in an abusive and passionate relation with her daughter’s father. Suzie, 20 year-old white stripper who falls for Evans, a black gangster. Their relationship will take an unexpected turn. And finally, there is Dickens, 16 year-old Haitian who wants to be part of the street gang controlled by his older brother who denies him it’s access.
NOIR, a look at the world of street gangs. A story which is happening here and now.
