Frank loses his job and fears Maroussia and him will no longer be able to love each other. His plan is to leave and earn exactly as much money as her: twelve thousand Euros. He used to scam customers from a local junkyard for a living. Without a job he now feels like a freeloader and sets out on an Odyssey across Frances industrial landscapes to restore the financial equality in their relationship. „Hardly anyone has staged sexual attraction, economic dependence, and the negotiation of personal moral ground in such a radically different way as Nadège Trebal does here. It has been a long time since French cinema seemed so provocative and self-confidently new.“ (sennhausersfilmblog.ch)
