Following an urban redevelopment project, Géro is about to be evicted from his home and his small theatre, where he no longer plays since he lost his voice. A nephew he barely knows suddenly settles in his home. He wants to write.

Goldilocks Planets opens with the cold presentation of a new urban project that generates practical concerns for the inhabitants of that neighbourhood. Squeezed between dull suburban areas and standardised office buildings, Gaël Lépingle's characters try and counter the fast-track dehumanisation of their environment. But fiction can thrive in the most unexpected places: an art performance set in a car park, a small theater venue surviving inside a housing lot... . This films depicts the heterotopia that can still be found amid our dead towns and cities in a romantic and Moonfleet-inspired tone that turns the characters' daily lives into thrilling adventures.
