Jonathan, a working-class teenager from the suburbs is living with a distant father and a tyrannical pregnant step mother. He has a privileged relationship with the priest of his neighbourhood church, who serves in him in answering the questions he cannot ask his own family.
When he finds out he is to be sent to boarding school, he steals money from his father and decides to run away from home. He goes to his friend Steve and convinces him to go on an afternoon trip to Paris where they can have fun spending the money.
After a failed attempt to enter the sex shops in Pigalle they decide to go to a squat and find some weed. They meet a nervous dealer, «Shooter», who gets them what they want. After smoking a couple of joints, Steve has to go back home and Jonathan decides to stay in a hidden place of the squat . Weakened by the smoke, he falls asleep very quickly.
When he wakes up, he finds himself tied up by Shooter, whose real name is Antoine, who wants to keep him as a hostage in case some of the thugs he had an argument with decide to turn him in to the police. An ambiguous relationship grows between the kidnapper and its victim.
