In a region where the only job prospects are the local factory, prostitution or drugs, Martel tries to make a decent living and to take care of his old mother. He has two jobs, but this is not enough to cover for the expenses of his mother’s nursing home.

One day, he and his colleagues find out that the factory is about to be delocalized and they will soon lose their jobs. Martel needs money. His friend Bruce, a simple minded bodybuilder, needs an accomplice to kidnap a prostitute and earn a lot of money. But Bruce is stupid and it all turns wrong.

These are the stories of lower class people, men and women who dream of love and of a normal life but must deal with a cruel and inevitable reality.
