A down-and-out group of basically decent people band together to somehow survive in modern Paris in this fascinating French ensemble piece that employs humor and drama to present slices from their daily lives. Among the group is servant Marie-Sol, who prays to the Blessed Virgin for a baby; Marie's gentle husband Patrick, who, along with his friends, is unemployed; Marie-Sol's bartender brother and his girl friend Josefa, who works as a stripper at the Blue parrot where he works; Marie Sol's confused, crippled father, who doesn't know that the Spanish Civil War has ended. A few others complete the motley band.
