In 2033 Europe is suffocating under several fascist governments that reached power after a long economic crisis that desolated most countries. Paris is a corrupt shadow of its former self. All the immigrants have been expelled and the political dissidents are jailed or in exile. The members of the resistance flood Montmartre to drink their woes away during the night and retreat back to their dens to plot during the day, but they lack the impetus and discipline to act.
In an abandoned building in a Parisian suburb, a group is planning an attack on an important political figure of the regime. Jean Montenegro, a former film director, is their leader. Jean, forty years old, after spending three years in jail and being left behind by his wife, decided to create a group with like-minded friends: Claudia, an Hungarian actress that avoided the mass expulsion and is out of options, and Max, a young student of political sciences in the Sorbonne who decided to stay in Paris to fight instead of joining his family in exile. The rest of the group is made up by Charles, a brave and impulsive man, and Francis, an alcoholic driver who is sick of everything.
