Synopsis

Nicolas is released from prison after 18 years of detention. As a youngster, he had been a member of a revolutionary splinter group. He thought changing the world using violence. During one of the attacks performed by the group, Nicolas drove the car. A policeman accidentally died in the incident.

Leaving prison, Nicolas sincerely wishes to take his place in society: lead an ordinary life, take an ordinary job and, why not, live as a couple with Nadia, an unpredictable woman he is desperately in love with.

Having found accommodation in a squat, Nicolas is confronted with present day contestant youth as well as with his old friends and present society. Torn between his desire to live an ordinary life and his old ideals, will he manage to resist the temptation to take up the game that had sent him into prison?
