Synopsis: 

Rabot tells the story of a social housing block on the brink of demolition. Those seeking a way out of their misery jump from the roof; those unable to find a home elsewhere land up here in this small high-rise community where indifference reigns supreme. Both the building and the residents must go, marking the end of a turbulent era. We follow several of the occupants during their final months in the tower block. A story of love, loneliness and poverty in the heart of Western society.
