Fifteen-year-old Igor (Jérémie Rénier) helps his father Roger (Olivier Gourmet) employ illegal immigrants to work on building sites. When one of the workers is seriously injured after a fall from some scaffolding, Igor promises to look after the man's wife (Assita Ouedraogo) and child. In doing so he gradually comes to realise the gulf between his own values and those of the workers.
