Alimentation générale

In Epinay-sur-Seine, in the neighborhood called “la Source”, Ali’s grocery store is the only shop of the decayed shopping center still in business. It’s also the only place left for the inhabitants to meet. By filming time going by, on their faces, on their destiny, this chronicle shows the importance of such a place, a small store where in spite of difficulties and poverty, people still share user-friendliness, laughter, human warmth.
