Frank-Etienne is a door-to-door salesman on a mission to sell empty boxes in the middle of nowhere. Things go awry when he meets a young woman who is determined to take advantage of his kindness and his car. Unable to resist her, Frank-Etienne finds himself in an increasingly absurd situation with the woman, her lover, and his dog.
DIRECTOR'S COMMENT ON THE FILM
I wrote this story specifically for Depardieu and Fois. I wanted to put them in an absurd situation and let the humor come out of their physicality. I thought of them as an unlikely Bonnie and Clyde set in a stylized black and white universe. My desire was to create a world that could be simultaneously comical and sad.
