Synopsis

The consultation is inside the Avicenne hospital in Bobigny. It is an island that seems abandoned at the end of a corridor. A large, obscure and dilapidated room in which sick men, marked in their flesh, land, and for whom the pain speaks the sorrows of exile. If they come back, it is because they do not despair of finding here the means of standing up, of resisting sinking.
