Synopsis

It is the story ...

...of Michele (Ariane Ascaride) who works at the fish market and whose only goal in life is to save her daughter Fiona (Julie-Marie Parmentier); from drug addiction...
...of Paul (Jean-Pierre Darroussin) who betrays his striking docker friends to become a taxi driver...
...of Abderramane (Alexandre Ogou), transformed by time in jail, who wants to help his brothers...
...of Claude (Pierre Banderet) who gets an audience only among extreme right militants...
...of Gerard (Gerard Meylan) whose attitude towards death (his own and others') is a mystery...
...of Paul's parents (Jacques Boudet, Pascale Roberts) who are retired and will never vote again...
...of Ameline (Veronique Balme), whose body gives off a sense of good health that she wants to pass on to others...
...of Sarkis who fights the grand piano of his dreams...

These individual, overlapping stories occur at the same time and in the same place - Marseille in the year 2000. Faced with an ever-increasing sense of meaningless and confusion, they testify that 'the town is not quiet'.
