Paris. Nedjma, a teenager living with her mom and sister, spends the summer with her squad. She sees her life turned upside down when she meets Zina, coming from the opposite gang. They are rivals in broad daylight, but lovers in secret. Nedjma is sucked into a spiral, torn apart between the values of the hood and her own desire, which no one around her can possibly understand or let alone tolerate. She will have to make a choice that will ultimately define who she is.

Marion Desseigne-Ravel avastas kino, kui ta oli 20-aastane, osaledes dokumentaalfilmis dokumentideta inimeste võitlusest Île-de-France'is. Fémisse (La Fémis) astudes koges ta näitlejatega koos töötamist ning talle hakkasid meeldima mängufilmid. Seal tegi ta lühifilme, sealhulgas "Seinad" ("Les murs", 2010) ja "Reis Lemuriasse" ("Voyage en Lemurie", 2013), mis valiti paljudele festivalidele, ning pärast õpinguid "Jalakad" ("Les Ormes", 2017) ja "Fatiya" (2019). Praeguseks on ta lõpetanud oma esimese täispika mängufilmi "Bestikad" ("Les meilleures"/"Besties", 2021). Tegeledes ühingutega, kaasasutas ta 2009. aastal ühingu Combats Ordinaire ja osaleb sellistes koosseisudes nagu Mille Visages või Créteili rahvusvaheline naiste filmifestival (Festival des Films de Femmes de Créteil). Alates 2016. aastast õpetab ta ülikoolis Pariis 8.
