During the winter of 1943-44, Julien Quentin, a student at a Carmelite boarding school in occupied France, is returning to school from vacation. He acts tough to the students at the school, but he is actually a pampered mother's boy who still wets his bed. Saddened to be returning to the tedium of boarding school, Julien's classes seem uneventful until Père Jean, the headmaster, introduces three new pupils. One of them, Jean Bonnet, is the same age as Julien. Like the other students, Julien at first despises Bonnet, a socially awkward boy with a talent for arithmetic and playing the piano.

Atteint d'un cancer du poumon, un officier de la marine nationale française se voit confier un ultime commandement après l'avoir expressément réclamé, celui de l'escorteur d'escadre Jauréguiberry dont c'est également la dernière mission avant son désarmement. Il est chargé de l'assistance et de la surveillance de la grande pêche sur les bancs de Terre-Neuve. Le commandant mène aussi une quête personnelle, enracinée dans les guerres coloniales françaises depuis un évènement sur le Mékong en 1948 : croiser une dernière fois un homme qu'il a connu, devenu patron d'un chalutier. Le déroulement du film révèle qu'il avait donné sa parole à cet homme, parole qu'il n'avait pas pu tenir en raison de divers événements politiques. On peut supposer que, durant toute sa vie qui maintenant s'achève, il a souffert de ce manquement.
