PARIS is the story of a Parisian who is ill and thinks he may die. His condition makes him look at all the people he meets in a new and different way. Imagining his death suddenly gives new meaning to his life, to other peoples' lives, and to the life of the whole city.

Fruit and vegetable sellers, a woman who runs a bakery, a social worker, a dancer, an architect, a homeless person, a university professor, a model, an illegal immigrant from Cameroon... All these very different people come together in this city and in this film. You might imagine there's nothing special about them, but for every single one of them, their life is unique. You might believe their problems don't matter, but to them, they are the most important things in the world.
