Set in La Ciotat, a French town near the city of Marseille, which was once prosperous due to its huge dockyard but has been in economic decline for 25 years since its closure. A writing workshop has been set up during the summer aiming to combat youth unemployment in the area, attempting to help integrate seven young people into the world of work. Under the guidance of a well-known novelist, Olivia Dejazet, the participants are asked to compose a crime thriller connected to the industrial past of their hometown. But when one boy, Antoine – already openly hostile to those around him – begins to create a story which is provocative and violent, Olivia becomes absorbed by this troubling development.
