Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Fred lives in a housing project outside of Paris with his lover Lisa and her five-year old son. When not working in a factory or being with his little family, he hangs out with his close friend and neighbor Michel. Like the other factory workers, Fred and Michel live humble lives. Unfortunately, the plant shuts down following a workers strike and all 200 workers are suddenly unemployed. Fred is thought to have had something to do with the strike. With no work, he gladly accepts Michel's offer to drive a truck to a certain locale and leave it there. Unfortunately a murder follows this event and Fred is the prime suspect. This causes the hapless fellow to go into hiding while a determined cop looks for him.
