After a ten-year absence, François returns to his hometown in the Creuse and to Serge, a childhood friend, who is drowning his loss of ambition in liquor. Although Serge is married to Yvonne, he is ogling Marie, his sister-in-law and notorious village slut. Yvonne is pregnant. Despite a succession of calamities, the birth of his child and François's friendship open Serge's eyes to his base behavior.
