The film shows the life of four Italian refugees living in Paris for the past 20 years. They were all linked to the social turmoil that led to an armed struggle in Italy during the seventies. Oreste Scalzone, former national leader of Potere Operaio, Cesare Battisti, celebrated "noir" novel writer and former militant of a leftist armed group, Luigi Rosati, african music expert and former Rome leader of Potere Operaio and Paolo Persichetti, former militant of Red Brigades (BR-UCC) who still leads a clandestine life in France. They all fled Italy to escape Italian justice, some even escaped from prison. All of them but Persichetti have now a legal resident status in France after being officially "tolerated" for 20 years. Persichetti has recently been extradated to Italy, being the first of all Italian political refugees to be delivered to the Italian Justice. He is now in jail in Italy.

The film shows their daily life in Paris and their continuous fight against Italian extradition as archival footage about their past.
