Nicolas and Thierry are in their twenties. They grew up together in a village on Brittany’s Opal Coast. Rather than stay unemployed, they try to enlist in the Army after completing their military service, but even the Army won’t take people with no skills. Humiliated, they can’t face going back home. They hole up at a camp site, where they meet Françoise and Annie, but their friend- ship goes to pieces. Just as they were about to solve their problems together, their differences come breaking out. They’re entering adulthood.
