Dapperly dressed Charles, nicknamed the Prince, is the charismatic leader of a group of hustlers that cajole potential clients into the hair salons around Paris’ Chateau d’Eau metro station. But Charles has dreams of his own – settling down and owning Mourat’s failing barber shop. A kaleidoscopic portrait of daily life in a working-class area of Paris, captivatingly seen through the eyes of the employees and clientele of the African hair salons located there, with a more general homage to the French capital, and the resourcefulness and vivacity of the people who live in it.
