He has brought with him his regular troupe of actors, each more eccentric and out of control than the next.

Every year at the University of Saint-Denis, the Eloquentia competition is held to determine The Best Orator in the 93, a reference to the number of the Seine-Saint-Denis department. Students following any course can participate and prepare with the help of professional advisors including lawyers, slammers, and directors, who teach them the delicate exercise of public speaking. Over the weeks, they learn the subtle mechanisms of rhetoric, and will affirm their talents, revealing themselves to others, and above all, to themselves. With this new arsenal, Leïla, Elhadj, Eddy and the others face off in a bid to become the best orator in the 93.
