Abandoned by his mother at just six years old, Maloney (Rod Paradot) is constantly in and out of juvenile court. A juvenile judge nearing retirement named Florence Blaque (Catherine Deneuve) and a caseworker with a rough childhood named Yann (Benoît Magimel) come to believe that they can help young Maloney and save him from his life of crime. In an attempt to curb his reckless ways, Maloney is then sent to a stricter educational center, where he meets Tess (Diane Rouxel), a special young girl who reignites his hope for a better life.
