Sebastien (Georges Babluani), a Georgian immigrant in France, leads an impoverished life with his family. When hired to repair the roof of the morphine-addicted Godon (Philippe Passon), Sebastien eavesdrops in on a conversation which appears to offer a quick and easy solution to his money troubles.
When Godon suddenly dies, Sebastien decides to follow the instructions meant for the recently deceased addict. The clues lead him into the heart of the French countryside and face-to-face with a ring of clandestine gamblers who bet on human lives.
