While the presidential election campaign continues full steam ahead, Marco, a longtime activist, decides not to vote. Both disappointed by politics and mired in money problems, little by little he turns his back on society. Approaching forty, Marco takes account of his life for the first time. He feels as though it is slipping him by and believes that he has failed. He thought he would make a living through music, but instead finds himself in debt, and surviving thanks to social services, alone in the world. Marco meets Leila, a young student who is very hopeful about the elections. She will be voting for the first time and is intensely involved in the campaign. She encourages Marco and spurs his renewed confidence.
Jacques, Marco's neighbor, has been without a job for many years. His wife has just died and he withdraws into himself. He refuses to see his daughter, Cynthia, who has chosen Moussa as her partner, a man very different from her father. Killing time in front of the television, he becomes seduced by extreme right-wing speeches. Moved by this lonely man, Leila gets him to bond again with his daughter.
While the results of the second voting is declared and a large number of French people celebrate the victory of a new president, each of the protagonists experience a night that will change the course of their lives.
