This thriller tells the story of Ilan Halimi who was kidnapped for ransom in a Paris suburb. His captors, who dub themselves the Gang of Barbarians, operate under the assumption that his Jewish heritage means he is worth a lot of money. For 24 days the police, insistent upon handling the case as a normal for-ransom kidnapping, failed to recognize the anti-semitic overtones of the abduction. Faithfully reenacting events from the view of the various characters, Tout, tout de suite raises troubling questions about the state of antisemitism and race relations in contemporary France.
