Stephane joins the Anti-Crime Squad in Montfermeil, in Paris suburbs, where Victor Hugo set his novel Les Miserables. Alongside his colleagues Chris and Gwada, Stephane discovers tensions running high between gangs. When the trio finds themselves overrun during an arrest, a drone captures the encounter. Inspired by the 2005 Paris riots, and Ladj Ly’s short film of the same name, Les Misérables is a provocative insight into the tensions between residents and police.
