Alexandra, a young music lover, leaves Paris to settle in New York. Determined to immerse herself in Harlem and let herself be jostled by the intranquility of the city-world, according to improbable scenes she meets unusual people, heroes of circumstance. Each in his own way rowdy certainties and quick to deconstruct borders: saxophonist, dancer-choreographer, former detective, filmmaker, political refugee, breakdancers ...

Distilling gravity and lightness, suffering and resilience, the story questions the springs of artistic creation and the meaning of our lives as much as the tentacles of racism, state violence, or the links of African-Americans with their African origins. Throughout the pages, an eclectic and vibrant painting of the Island of Manhattan emerges.
