Marius is the keeper of an abandoned cement works staying high above the quarter of l'Estaque in Marseilles. Jeannette is bringing up her two children alone with her poor checkout operator salary. Their meeting won't be without trouble, since besides material difficulties, both of them are wounded by life. They have to learn how to be happy again.

Pugnacious Jeannette lives in a convivial working class house in Marseilles, where she raises her two children with the meagre pay from her precarious job in a supermarket. When she attempts to steal two buckets of paint from a derelict cement works, she is caught red-handed by Marius, the limp guard who lives there. A relationship between Marius and Jeannette develops, but they are both hesitant to become emotionally committed. The unavoidable involvement of Jeannette's talkative, sometimes quarrelling, mostly cheerful neighbours, brings additional - sometimes decisive - twists to her relationship with Marius, and with her children as well.
