In the streets of Gouine City, Alex Duke tries to be tough: part-detective, part-bodyguard, she does what needs to be done under the orders of Vi, her lifelong friend. There are scams, outbursts, lies, crimes, and fights. Gouine City is a city that pulsates and hits, as addictive as it is destructive. It’s a city like any other with streets and bars populated by tender crazies, idealists, lost souls, and uncompromising bastards. And it’s among them that Alex Duke takes us on a journey, funny, sometimes disillusioned, always as generous as she is whimsical.
With this first season of Gouine City Confidential, Laurène Duclaud revisits the codes and clichés of American crime fiction to deliver the chronicle of the life of a devilishly modern woman.
