Dog and Mirales are childhood friends. They live in a small village in the south of France and spend most of their days hanging out in the streets. To kill time, Mirales has got into the habit of teasing Dog, often more than necessary. But that fall, Dog meets Elsa with whom he has a love affair. Riddled with jealousy, Mirales has to let go of his past to grow up and find his place.
