Deliver me from Evil


Jean-Jacques has spent 9 years in prison for robbery. Upon his release, he returns to the neighborhood where he grew up, but things have changed… The country is in a crisis, young people are running the business, and his old friends urge him to pick up where he left off… Perhaps it is the moment for Jean-Jacques to ask himself a few tough questions. But he risks falling back to his old habbits when Nassim, a person he met in prison who has now become a friend, gets in touch, needing his help. At a crossroads, Jean-Jacques is stuck by his contradictions: a multiracial man adopted by a white family, a convert to Islam, attracted to two women, torn between finding a place in society and deliquency. Will the search for his origins enable him to get off to a new start?
