" My name is Alexis, and I’ve just turned thirty. I am therefore supposed to be a man… However I have difficulty acting out the " virility " which is considered indispensable for the socially adjusted male individual of my age. My professional, sentimental and sexual life leave a lot to be desired. ". Alexis opted, long ago, for a comfortably withdrawn and unthreatening approach to life. This approach allows him to devour videotapes of mediocre films and poor quality canned food…Waiting for better times. " My name is Laura, I’am a young lady of the age group that women’s magazines write about – 25 to 35 years – and I’ve just been dumped. I’am an overqualified, attractive young " working girl " who seems to have everything going for her… ". Alexis meets Laura, they fall in love, are happy, bicker, are jealous, separate, get married, don’t get married, have children…
