Little pleasures on every floor
HUMOR, TENDERNESS & FRIENDSHIP
Joanna Baron’s partner is a prominent tax expert, and by his side, she leads a peaceful existence in a chic neighborhood in a town in the Paris area.
But when her partner is arrested for criminal conspiracy and money laundering, this mother of three finds her life upended. With no money or place to live, she is forced to move to a low-income housing complex on the wrong side of the highway.
There, between life’s surprises and happenstance, Joanna and her children cross paths with Djibril, a mysterious neighbor always surrounded by bimbos; Raymond, a young retiree at pains to declare his love to one of his neighbors; and then there’s Fatou, who works three jobs as she home-schools her three children, always wearing a smile on her face. They are all “little pleasures on every floor” that will change Joanna’s vision of the world and bring her unexpected energy.
