Paris, today. A child and his young mother sleep on the streets. Nina is unemployed with no ties. Enzo is five years old. Their drifting leads them to Versailles. In the woods near the palace, a man lives in a hut, cut off from everything. Damien. Nina spends a night with him. Early the next morning, she leaves the child and vanishes. When Damien awakes, he finds Enzo alone. As the days and seasons pass, the man and the child become acquainted, start to get along and grow fond of each other. Their bond will be as strong as their destitution. However, they will have to leave the hut one day…
