Milan is a beleaguered old thief who rolls into a small French town with the aim of robbing its bank. However, with no place to stay and following a chance meeting with Manesquier, a retired poetry teacher, he accepts his offer of shelter, which leads to an unexpected friendship. Milan has grown tired of his adventurous life on the run and wishes to retire in peace; Manesquier craves the danger he’s never known in his bookish existence. Their shared admiration and envy inspires each to reconsider their future.
