Alain Moreau sings for one of the few remaining dance-bands in Clermont-Ferrand. Though something of an idol amongst his female audience he has a melancholic awareness of the slow disappearance of that audience and of his advancing years. He is completely knocked off balance when he meets strikingly attractive and much younger businesswoman Marion. She seems distant and apparently otherwise involved but soon shows quiet signs of reciprocating his interest. A brief dalliance turns into something much more complicated and he starts to employ - indeed monopolise - her services as an estate agent by announcing he suddenly must move house.

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.
