A lost dog roams around in a working-class neighbourhood of Paris and being taken care of by a myriad of persons on the street, each one cajoling the tail-waggling puppy in his/her own way.
The dog may be a euphemism for all the marginalised in the society, being ‘toyed’ around, humiliated, or disregarded- being at the mercy of the others despite passing enjoyable moments. Nonetheless, and importantly, the video is imbued with affection and hope, possibly linked to a liberty of vagabondism, youthful audacity and unspoken but subliminal faith for a better future.
Shot from the perspective of the protagonists, the short film is endowed with the sense of authenticity, sometimes leading to building up tension that marks lives of immigrants and minority communities: It is an unapologetic affirmation of those whose lives are more often not, mere footnotes to the mainstream society.
