From 5 am in his mobile-home, Christophe listens to the messages his clients have left for him. After he was sacked, this former shop manager is trying to pick himself up again and has launched a scrap metal business with his associate, Dominique. In his workshop, he polishes, recycles, and makes good. In spite of the good relationship he shares with his daughter, of whom he is very proud, and the regular visits of his friend Ali, Christophe sometimes goes to sleep feeling depressed, on his own in his dilapidated home.
