A medically supervised drug consumption site has opened in Paris. This new place is fuelling the difficult cohabitation of two worlds, that of the inhabitants of the neighbourhood and that of the most precarious and marginalised drug users.
Inside, we see the impact of the health and social work carried out by educators and nurses on the life of the users.
Outside, we follow the public debate between local residents, associations and public authorities.
What do the issues raised by this experiment teach us about French society’s relationship to drug addiction and hence its relationship to difference?
A 70-minute version of this film also exists : Here I’m not gonna die.
