Marius and Jeannette live in the same working-class apartment complex in Marseille, in close proximity with their neighbors. The lame Marius is a security guard at an abandoned cement works, and since the company has gone out of business and the plant will soon be demolished, he is squatting in order to save money. Jeannette is a single mother raising her two children on her own on a meagre supermarket checkout operator salary. They meet when Jeannette tries to steal two cans of paint from the cement lot, and Marius catches her and tries to chase her. The following day Marius comes to her door to apologize, and brings her the two cans of paint. A relationship soon develops between them, but as both have been wounded by marital difficulties, and life in general, they are hesitant to become committed. It does not help that Jeannette's romantic fantasy notions are different from Marius' practical ideas. The two must learn how to love again in order for their relationship to blossom.

Samia Zibra, jeune et inexpérimentée, débute comme conseillère principale d'éducation (CPE). Originaire de l'Ardèche, elle demande un poste en région parisienne pour des raisons particulières. Elle découvre ainsi le collège en zone d'éducation prioritaire (ZEP) de la cité des Francs-Moisins, à Saint-Denis en Seine-Saint-Denis. Elle y rencontre de nombreux problèmes, notamment le manque de discipline et la réalité sociale du quartier. Elle découvre cependant l'incroyable vitalité et l'humour (des élèves comme des surveillants) qui règnent dans l'établissement. Dans l'équipe des surveillants, Samia peut notamment compter sur Moussa, le « Grand » du quartier, et Dylan, le chambreur. Samia va peu à peu s'adapter à ce nouvel univers. Sa situation personnelle la rapproche de Yanis, un élève vif et intelligent avec un potentiel gâché par son insolence et mis dans la classe des « SOP » (sans options). Samia va cependant essayer de le sortir de son échec scolaire pour lui proposer un avenir meilleur.

The film covers an academic year, beginning with the teachers gathering for the autumn term, introducing themselves to each other and being welcomed by the principal, an unsmiling figure wearing rimless glasses. It ends with an informal game of football between staff and pupils and a long hand-held shot of an empty classroom.
