Love can strike anywhere, anytime. In a container in a northern port of France. At a supermarket cash register. Behind the sliding glass door of a suburban home. And on the stage of an amateur theater, in the heart of a sailor named Neptune, or on the dance floor of a small-town dancing room. In a port city, the lives of a few isolated people, used to violence, are strongly influenced by the love they feel for each other. Choices, envy, love, and tenderness are the driving forces that help these characters to be themselves and give meaning to their lives. A fascinating tribute to poetry, theater, and art.
