In the dusty and dilapidated setting of an old cafeteria near a motorway on the outskirts of Paris, the lives of several characters intersect through four gangster stories: an amateur thief, whose victim is herself an apprentice hold-up artist; two kidnappers who abduct a suicidal young teenage girl who keeps begging them to kill her and whose father refuses categorically to pay a ransom; a singer suffering from creative block who steals a more productive colleague's latest original compositions; finally, five 70-year-olds who come out of retirement to relish the joys of robbery at gunpoint once again. As many characters, as many different destinies, though led more by accident and mistake than by grand design.
