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 taken to teasing Dog more than he should. Their friendship is put to the test by the arrival in the village of a young girl, Elsa, with whom Dog is about to fall in love. Riddled with jealousy, Mirales has to let go of his past in order to grow up and find his place.
