Martine, une adolescente vivant en HLM près d'une base militaire américaine dans la grande banlieue parisienne en 1965 ne pense qu'à une chose : perdre sa virginité. Avec une amie, Marlène, qui, elle, a déjà fait l'amour et fréquente des garçons plus âgés, elle est invitée à une fête où elle pense qu'elle pourra mener son projet à bien. Mais lorsqu'elles arrivent, se cachant pour observer la fête, les deux jeunes filles s'aperçoivent que les parents sont présents et qu'on y danse la farandole... Les deux jeunes filles décident alors de se rendre à une autre fête, celle où se trouve Alain, le frère aîné de Martine, qui ne voit pas d'un très bon œil sa sœur essayer de danser, « et plus si affinités » avec des garçons.

The film begins with the silhouettes of soldiers, being made to stand in the sun as an endurance test. It is the memory of master sergeant Galoup (Denis Lavant), from his new home in Marseille, where he writes his memoirs. He remembers the heat of north Africa, where he led his men under the command of Bruno Forestier (Michel Subor). We see numerous training scenes: assault courses; and securing of buildings. Much of the exercise has a ballet-like quality. This is set against a back-drop of traditional Djibouti life of the surrounding local people. Galoup says of Forestier:I admired him without knowing why. He retains a wristband with the word Bruno.
