A group of desperate and unemployed men gathers regularly in a café to play cards and forget their life, which is slipping away. The men find in Marc, a newcomer freshly released from prison, a new hope to escape their sad fate. All together they decide to become criminals and rob a local factory. They made up an improbable plan, which is crazy enough to work. For them a new moral code applies: the right of the weakest... This powerful drama tinted by an unexpected touch of humour deals with the choice between a sad life or risking everything to change it.
