The Lyonnais banlieue. Market day at the Minguettes, a new neighborhood built between the '60s and the '70s.
"Yalla, yalla! Come on, let's go!" yell the merchants from their stalls. The smells, the merchandise, and the sounds of the square cut off any spatial or temporal connection with reality: it is like being catapulted into a suk somewhere in the Middle East, forgetting that you are in the heart of the most traditional part of France.
