Victor is a lonely child looking for an escape from his bad home environment where his parents pay him to watch them have sex. Triche is a prostitute with a painful history of incest, and yearns for a normal life with a family and kids. When the two meet, a warm relationship develops with fairy tale overtones. Victor is played by Jeremy Chaix, who was one of the seven children in Y aura-t-il de la neige à Noël? by the same director. With this film, the locale has moved from the countryside to crammed city apartments that accentuate the caged-in condition of the characters. Unlike the previous film, the two protagonists are given actual names, but it is still the story of the wolf and the lamb, and the difficulty of communicating with others is the overriding theme.
