Pierre is a middle-aged factory worker with a harridan mother and plenty of unresolved anger about his life. After his father's death, his mother feels compelled to move in with him. Having just moved there with his beautiful girlfriend, he begins to feel the pressure at home and at work. When the May Day revolt begins, he goes crazy, brandishes a sidearm and tells complete strangers to sack businesses and loot stores. Running up to his apartment, he discharges several rounds from his handgun before realizing he needs psychological help.
