GANHAR A VIDA

Un Certain Regard
Directed by :
João CANIJO 
Country:
PORTUGAL
Duration:
115.00 minutes

Synopsis

On the outskirts of Paris, a housing project. A youth gang. A fight with the cops. A teenager is killed. From then on, everything happens fast. The boy was Portuguese. The Portuguese community in France never talks. Silence is its rule. But Cidalia wants to know: she wants the truth.
She is thirty-six years of age. A cleaning woman. As she pursues her crusade, her battle for change, the community turns against her. "This is France", they say, "We are not at home here. We want no trouble."
Faced with the blank wall of collective embarrassment, Cidalia won't keep quiet. She is ostracized. She loses friends, job, family. But one thing she gains: a life of her own.
