Olivia, a well-known Parisian novelist, runs a writing workshop with a group of young people in La Ciotat, in the South of France. She is particularly intrigued by Antoine, a taciturn and not very sociable, young man. Antoine makes writing proposals that others consider shocking, and becomes the "black sheep" of the group. Olivia and Antoine, who seeks escape from his daily life by immersing himself in an extreme right-wing ideology, develop a relationship that is marked by attraction and repulsion.
