A humorous and endearing immersion in the everyday lives of the various communities that make up contemporary France.

This social comedy features Brahim, a young real estate agent, and Helena, a young woman of Portuguese origin, both deeply in love with each other. Everything is going fine until Helena finds out she’s pregnant. This triggers a waterfall of prejudices from the members of their respective families.
Paradoxically, these destructive clichés are the foundation upon which the show’s underlying humour is built. Free of the shackles of bias, "Fortunes" takes a cold, straightforward look at the universal themes of French youth and the communities within it.
The characters are realistic, not always politically correct, and extremely likeable.

"Fortunes" has been awarded the Geneva Award for "Best first fiction script”, the Europa Award in Berlin 2008 and the TV5 Monde Award for "Best French-speaking feature film" at the "Cinéma Tous Ecrans" festival in 2008.
