The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop

Standing heavy

Initially a little intrigued, all babies eventually return the security guard’s smile. The security guard adores babies. Perhaps because babies do not shoplift. Babies adore the security guard. Perhaps because he does not drag babies to the sales. Amidst the political bickering of the inhabitants of the Residence for Students from Côte d’Ivoire and the ever-changing landscape of French immigration policy, Ossiri, Ferdinand and Kassoum attempt to make their way in Paris as undocumented workers, taking shifts as security for a flour mill. Meanwhile, in a Sephora on the Champs-Élysées, the all-seeing eye of a security guard observes the habits of those who come to worship at this church to consumerism.
