    • Synopsis
    • Elsa makes ends meet by working odd jobs. At night, she cleans busses in a deserted depot, during the day she tiredly looks after the child of a young couple. In hopes of landing a steady job, she goes to interviews that end up disastrous. Her neighbor Mathieu also tries to land a job, but has seemingly perfected the art of failure during his own interviews. One day Elsa is evicted from her apartment. She thus begins a life of uncertainty, with a potted plant as her companion. Mathieu, from time to time, offers his love, which she is not prepared to receive. The temptation to leave everything behind leads her into the forest, where Mathieu has also found refuge and set up his camp. For a time they live apart from civilization, but they both know that one day they will have to come back and confront the world, or leave it for good.
