Aurélien and his sister Argine have been living together for what seems like forever. During the day, Aurélien works as a florist in a flower shop, but his “real” job, the one that finances his life, is his “night job” as a stolen metal dealer. No one knows about this double life, not even Argine. Aurélien lies about his nighttime activities in order to protect her.
But one night, something unplanned happens. His accomplice Simon is being followed by the police, is in desperate need of money and becomes very unpleasant. Suddenly, Aurélien is confronted with is own violence and things take a turn for the worse. No longer can he protect Argine from the situation at hand, and the bond between brother and sister grows stronger.
