Characters :

  • Alain Delambre (Éric Cantona), 57, has been unemployed for 6 years and goes on ungrateful jobs to survive. It is washed out, on the verge of burnout.

Cold and manipulative, Dorfmann is always one step ahead, but he has never dealt with an opponent like Alain Delambre.
  • Charles (Gustave Kervern) does handling in a logistics warehouse. This is where he met Alain.

Not to mention that she too has things to hide …
