Georges Nail lives in a new suburban development. He's married, goes to work in the morning, goes to mass on sunday, loves his wife, son and dog. Paul Hammer is young, good looking, rich and intelligent. But he is torn by his severe judgement of the world and a desire to be part of it. One day, by coincidence, their paths meet. Nail sees this meeting as an opportunity to create a new and sincere friendship. On his side, Hammer sees it as a new reason for living : to crucify the perfect image of the happy western man and his incarnation in the person of Georges Nail. A nail is the perfect victim for a hammer.
