Somewhere in North of France, Nicolas and Thierry, two long-time friends in their twenties, are about to finish their military service. Both coming from low class families, they know all they will find back home is unemployment. They would love to stay in the army and get a proper job. But the army is not interested in employing under-educated boys. Here they are, back to normal life in their depressing neighbourhood, without a single plan for the future.
