Malik (Tahar Rahim), 19, half Arab, half Corsican, is sentenced to six years in a prison ruled by Arab and Corsican gangs. Illiterate, Malik seems fragile. But he toughens up when the leader of the Corsican gang (Niels Arestrup) gives him a number of "missions" to carry out, including killing an Arab prisoner. Malik is a fast learner—rising up the prison ranks, all the while secretly devising his own plans.

In French with subtitles.
