Vassili is an aging Paris hustler who has a hard time accepting he is growing too old for his profession. He lashes out by strangling one of his clients who had commented on his age. Later that night he finds an unconscious teenager in the Bois de Boulogne (a cruising park) who was apparently also hustling and has been beaten and robbed. The boy claims not to remember his name or anything else from his past, so Vassili takes him to his apartment and christens the boy Angelo due to his angelic appearance and an angel tattoo on his abdomen. The two begin a relationship that is purely sexual at first but later develops into a romantic connection.

En octobre 1999, Frédérick Muller, un sylviculteur du Loiret d'origine alsacienne, taciturne et passionné de Wagner, n'assiste pas à l'enterrement de son fils aîné Charles, laissant ses proches dans l'incompréhension et la colère, notamment son plus jeune fils Guillaume. Quelques semaines plus tard il décide d'expliquer son geste au moment d'un repas familial. Charles, son fils décédé, savait le secret que son père gardait depuis la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Alors jeune homme, Frédérick avait été incarcéré en 1941 plus d'un an au camp de Schirmeck en Alsace non pas pour des opinions politiques comme la légende familiale l'affirme depuis 50 ans, mais en application par les autorités françaises des lois de discrimination et de déportation des homosexuels du paragraphe 175 du code pénal allemand. Charles connaissant la réalité, avait dès lors méprisé son père et lui avait enjoint de taire ce secret et de ne pas assister à ses funérailles. Marianne, sa femme qui a toujours connu la vérité, avait accepté cette situation et, malgré tout, avait construit sa famille avec cet homme qu'elle aimait, et qu'elle laissait libre de vivre une vie amoureuse parallèle. Le choc de cette révélation s'abat sur Guillaume et Delphine, la fille de Charles.

Nancy, dans les années 1980. Gloria (Soko) est une ado rebelle dans une famille très stricte. Alors qu'elle se fait donner des leçons par ses parents (Nadège Prugnard et Fantazio), elle pique une crise de nerfs et elle est internée à l'hôpital psychiatrique Jeanne d'Arc de Dommartin-lès-Toul. Le psychiatre (Jean-Yves Ruf) lui reproche sa façon de s'enlaidir avec son look punk, sa façon de « se mettre en danger » et lui pose des questions intimes sur sa sexualité, auxquelles Gloria refuse de répondre. Gloria a du mal à supporter sa privation de liberté, mais sa rencontre avec Frances (Clara Ponsot), prétendument internée pour amnésie, lui donne plus de courage. Frances, très sûre d'elle et apparemment contente d'être là, commence à flirter avec elle. À sa sortie, Frances envoie plusieurs lettres d'amour enflammées à Gloria, alors que cette dernière ne lui envoie qu'une seule lettre de rupture. Quand Gloria sort finalement de l'hôpital, elle réintègre sa bande de punks et revoit Frances qui fait partie de la bande adverse de skins. Les deux tombent pourtant amoureuses l'une de l'autre et Frances suit la bande de Gloria pour quelque temps, même si elle ne s'y sent pas à l'aise. Frances finit par la quitter et Gloria part zoner seule dans la ville par dépit.
