Étienne Tinan (Andranic Manet), a young and serious cinephile, leaves behind Lyon and his girlfriend (Diane Rouxel) of six years to study at film school in Paris. There, he integrates into a bohemian student lifestyle. He is challenged and enthused by his new colleagues, Mathias (Corentin Fila) and Jean-Noël (Gonzague Van Bervesseles), with whom he shares artistic ideas and discusses the merits of Bach, Baudelaire and Marlen Khutsiev. Cinematic references guide their conversations and they are very aware that their tastes and approach to filmmaking dictate their status. However, it is against Mathias that Étienne compares himself the most and their relationship becomes emotionally complicated when Annabelle (Sophie Verbeeck), a political activist, meets Ètienne. He must now find his own personality as both a filmmaker and in his emotional life.
