A village in Southern France, 1962. The Algerian war is coming to an end. Teenagers Maïte and François are friends. François realizes he has feelings for his classmate Serge, who is instead attracted to Maïte - but Maïte is more interested in politics than in Serge. Her views are opposed to those of Henri, another classmate of the boys. The four of them entangle in a game of tensions and emotions.
