Usures in the result of a meaningful encounter with Saïd, a homeless choreographer.
His withdrawal from society is echoed by the void that he leaves in the film. Usures fills this void with moving bodies, substrates and bursts of life that embody the emotions that Saïd goes through in his daily life. Underground tunnels, bridges where two worlds collide, turn into a stage where bodies reconcile and take back the power over their own fate.
