Steve is 25 and looks like one of those hoods spotted in the everyday news on suburban violence.
He was actually one of them few months ago. He used to hang around in the staircases with his fellows, sharing joints and dreaming of a better life.
In September 2008 he suddenly decides to change his life and starts training as an actor in one of the most prestigious drama schools, "le Cours Simon".
Everyday since then, Steve has been taking the train RER B, from the station Aulnay to Paris, the golden universe of the well-off kids.
For Steve, fulfilling his dream of acting implies not only a social journey, but also an initiatory journey in an attempt to rebuild himself.
The film follows him at a turning point of his life and depicts the difficulties of such a metamorphosis.
