The final chapter in her trilogy is an ode to the fallen of Osaka. In this city, the third largest in the country, Chloé Jafé has traveled extensively in the district of Nishinari, a district erased from tourist guides that drains a population mainly made up of men, mostly over 60 years old. There she met and photographed homeless people, transvestites, retirees from banditry and those released from capitalism who preferred to hide there rather than face the shame of being fired.

These workers no longer have a future for the horizon. Through this work, Chloé Jafé tries to mend their history and modestly rehabilitate an unknown and muzzled part of Japan.
