Gilles (newcomer Clément Metayer) is a high school student torn between left-wing activism he distributes underground newspapers and spray-paints slogans on the schools walls and his aspiration to become a painter or filmmaker. After being left behind by his alluring but non-committal girlfriend Laure (Carole Combes), he meets political firebrand Christine (Goodbye, First Loves Lola Créton) and senses a kindred spirit.
