"Make love not war."
Baya Benmahmoud (Sara Forestier) is a young extrovert who lives by the old hippie slogan: "Make love, not war". Her intention in life is to seduce and convert as many right-wing men as she can to her left-wing political causes. She achieves this very successfully until she meets Arthur Martin (Jacques Gamblin).
Arthur is a Jewish, middle aged, middle-of-the road scientist. Despite the age gap the two are bound by common tragic family histories (the Algerian War and Holocaust under Vichy), and against all the odds, fall in love.
