The film, that has as main characters Vincent Cassel and Oliver Barthelemy, point the objective on no men’s land people, as the 21st Century France seems not to have space for them. This dissatisfaction and freedom need will lead them to undertake an escape, that sometimes takes romantic tones, at the research of a utopian community, that only exist in their minds. A film in which the nihilism and the uncomfortableness find an answer in the spasmodic research of the non substance of the contemporary existence.
