EN - One night on a bridge, a young man sits alone. Despite his bloody hand, he seems serene. A few meters away, paramedics are carrying off a body wrapped in white plastic. The young man is named Julien. He is a professional football player who lives with his father, a fireman. We also follow the path of young rebel Pouga, who dreams of living the high life. Even though they do not know each other, fate will force their paths to cross.

FR - Une nuit, un jeune homme est assis seul sur un pont. Malgré ses mains ensanglantées, il semble être serein. A quelques mètres de cela, des auxiliaires médicaux s’occupent d’un corps enveloppé dans du plastique blanc. Le jeune homme s’appelle Julien. C’est un footballeur professionnel qui vit avec son père pompier. Nous suivons aussi les traces d’une jeune rebelle nommée Pouga, qui rêve de vivre la grande vie. Bien qu’ils ne se connaissent pas, Julien et Pouga se ressemblent. Ils ne sont pas conscients que leur destin vont inévitablement se croiser.
