September 2015, Saint-Jouin-Bruneval, a small village in Normandie, volunteers to receive a refugees family. Some of the inhabitants renovate an appartment completely. And then, nothing.

Despite a certain hostility and thanks to the deterimnation of some inhabitants, the Hammoud family will finally come from Syria.
