Paris. A very busy boulevard. Someone throws a crumpled piece of paper into the outstretched hands of a beggar-woman. This is the bond which, for an instant, links the trajectories of several very different characters: Anne (Juliette Binoche), a young actress, is on the threshold of making it in the cinema. Her boyfriend, Georges (Thierry Neuvic), is a war photographer, he is rarely in France. His father is a farmer. Georges' younger brother, Jean, has no interest in taking over the farm.

Amadou (Ona Lu Yenke) is a music teacher in an institute for deaf-mute children. His father, a taxi driver, originates from Africa. His little sister is deaf and it's because of her that Amadou has chosen his profession.

Maria (Luminita Gheorghiu) comes from Romania and sends home the money she gets from begging. Having been deported, she goes back home to spend some time with her family before embarking on another humiliating journey to France.

What do they have in common, these characters and those whose path they cross?
