Films have come before Uda Benyamina's Divines that capture the troubled youth in the outskirts of Paris, the unfortunate souls that have been dealt a bad hand in life.

Young women run the show in this story of drug pushing, the ambition to get rich quick, and being miserably failed by the system. Read our review.
