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 anti-semitism and race relations in contemporary France.
