Double bill of futuristic French action films produced by Luc Besson. 'District 13' (2004) is set in the year 2010. The violent ghettoes of Paris have been walled off from the main city, the worst of these being District 13.
When gang warfare breaks out in the district, the authorities learn of a plot by gang leader Taha (Bibi Naceri) to detonate a neutron bomb, and send undercover cop Damien (Cyril Raffaelli) into the heart of the violent ghetto in order to hunt it down and defuse it, before it's too late.
In the sequel, 'District 13: Ultimatum' (2009), the death of gang overlord Taha Bemamud has left a power vacuum, and a battle for total control of the area is now raging between five rival territorial gang lords, all of whom want to step into Taha's position.
David Belle and Cyril Raffaelli reprise their roles as Leito and Damien, who return to the ravaged District 13 on a mission to bring peace to the sector before the Parisian secret services take drastic measures to solve the problem.
