After losing the shelter of their makeshift squat in a fire, around one hundred Roma are temporarily parked in trailers on a lot provided by the city of Montreuil on the outskirts of Paris. Here they await acceptance in a rehousing programme, but nothing is less certain. Among them, Ancuta and her family live this uncertainty, day after day.
