a film by :Teddy Lussi-Modeste

Jimmy Rivière is a young Gypsy, bright and edgy, sometimes too edgy. Under pressure from his community, Jimmy converts to Pentecostalism and gives up his two passions: Thai boxing and his girlfriend Sonia. But how can he turn down the new match his trainer Gina has lined up for him? And how can he resist the powerful desire that binds him to Sonia?

French Synopsis :

Jimmy Rivière est un jeune gitan, solaire, nerveux, parfois trop. Sous la pression de sa communauté, il se convertit au pentecôtisme et renonce à ses deux passions : la boxe thaï et Sonia. Mais comment refuser ce nouveau combat que lui propose son entraîneur ? Et comment résister au désir si puissant qui le colle à Sonia ?
