"Dans le cadre du concours Eloquentia organisé par leur Université, des étudiants de Saint-Denis apprennent à s’exprimer par le biais du plaidoyer mais aussi du théâtre, de la poésie et du chant. L’art de la rhétorique s’ouvre à eux, et avec lui celui de l’écoute, de l’affirmation de ses opinions et de la confiance en soi. Le portrait d’une jeunesse déterminée à prendre sa place et à se faire entendre, loin des préjugés sur la banlieue."
