20 years after being exiled for political violence, an Algerian writer comes back to the Soleil. In this cafe of the 20th district of Paris, he is looking for material to write a book: a story of immigrants through the cafes.
A morning just like any other at the cafe “Le Soleil” of the 20th district of Paris. A renown place for the memory of immigrants, workers and revolutionary of the Belleville-Ménilmontant neighborhood. This cafe spirituality now changed : it’s now filled with the new rich inhabitants of the neighborhood.
It’s during this last day of discussions , before its final closing , that Le Soleil will see the last testimonies of the little and the big History of the Algerian Immigration in France. A woman, some mens, workers, intellectuals, writers, musicians, staff, all will talk about their childhood during the war. Others talk about their political, cultural, syndical struggles. The war that changed forever the relation between France and Algeria for the last 60 years. Some hard testimonies but fun one too, with the participation of historians and specialist on the question.
