A small working-class town along Loire River. Like his father and grandfather before him, 19 years old Pavel works at Martinsson, the local industry. He spends his spare time with Anja, his childhood friend, almost his sister, whom he secretely loves. And if Anja is going to pass her high-school degree, dreaming of emancipation, Pavel isn’t worried: they grew up together, they will grow old together. That’s how it is meant to be. However, this beautiful horizon is soon to be darkened. While a social plan is announced at Martinsson, Anja is seduced by Antoine, the boss’s son. For the first time in his life, Pavel is no longer sure of anything.
