Lya, 17, lives in a suburban housing estate with her sisters Chirine, 18, and Inès, 7.
Since Chirine became a woman, her father no longer speaks to her. In her family, Lya is the only one to stand up to this father who has become violent.
In Paris, Chirine meets Alex, who calls himself an agent and offers her to become a model. But through Lya's gaze, Chirine realizes that she is falling into prostitution. Lya's revolt will reconcile the father with his daughters and Chirine will learn to defend herself. She then meets Simon, a well-known advertiser who, fascinated by her beauty, takes her destiny in hand...
Between the suburbs and the capital, love and violence, through their daily lives, Chirine and Lya seek their place as women in a world where humanity is trying to survive.
