Set in rural France during the end of the Algerian war, and immersed in the music of the sixties, this film follows four students in friendship and love. François's best friend is a girl Maite, but instead he falls in love with a boy Serge, while Serge is falling for Maite. Henri is the outsider, an Algerian-born Frenchman who has fled the war, and the catalyst for François to find his identity.
