This is the story of two young guys without any trouble who just want to « screw »
without being disturbed.« State of Emergency motherfucker» is a surrealistic comedy
that depicts a society where police violence and invasion of privacy are daily routine,
normal, tedious. The victims themselves are used to it. Even the police is used to it!
Every day, they get back at it. Samy and Mehdi aren’t even paying attention to it
anymore… the viewer neither. The real question of the movie is to finally discover if
Samy did get some on the night of Valentine’s…
