    Estaque-Riaux in the northern suburbs of Marseilles.Gilbert and his friends are well aware that their lives won't be like their parents'.

There is Banana, the unshakeable, chronically unemployed painter, Boule, Gilbert's sensitive brother who realizes that he may end up in jail and Mario, the truck driver who can't choose between his friends and his family.With its roots in authentic classical cinema, the film comes alive with the force and poignancy of contemporary reality.
