Amin, a young illegal immigrant, has just joined a group of other illegals camping in the forest. Every night is an opportunity to try to sneak into the dockyards and stow away under a truck.Over the course of his attempts, Amin discovers that between the forest and the men passing through it, there are other groups, other faces, other spaces.Behind the figure of the illegal immigrant walking, Parmi nous tells of crossing borders: the one between citizens and non-citizens, the one between reality and metaphor and the one between the living and the dead.
