One room, twelve chairs and a common language. People from all over the world meet each week for free French lessons in the library of the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Refugees of war sit together with businessmen, students next to victims of political persecution. They have one goal in common – to learn the language and find companions. Grammar mistakes and search for the right word opens the human soul and reveals efforts to create a home away from home feeling.
