A small boy, Emmanuel, his mother and sister, from Bulgaria, they’re asylum seekers.A tourist hotel of the old neighborhood of Monmartre, filled half by families of asylum seekers, half by regular tourists. To film, in the footsteps of this friendly family, the life of this hotel, this instant community, a little Tower of Babel in the heart of the old Paris. To record its expectations and dreams, in the heart of a narrow and fragile everyday life, the flavour of France, of freedom in a hotel room.
