Every year the University of Saint-Denis holds the "Eloquentia" contest, which aims to elect "the best speaker of the 93". Students from this university come from all backgrounds and decide to take part and prepare for it thanks to professionals (lawyers, directors, etc.) who teach them the difficult exercise of public speaking. As the weeks go by, they learn the basics rhetoric, become more confident, reveal themselves to others, and especially to themselves. Armed with these weapons, Leila, Elhadj, Eddy and the others try to win the contest hoping become "the best speaker of the 93".
