Michel has just lost his job and yet he lives happily with Marie-Claire, his wife of 30 years. Their children and grand-children fulfil their lives and they have some very close friends. Michel and Marie-Claire are also very proud of their involvement both at trade union and political level. Their conscience is as transparent as their views on life.
However, all this is destroyed at the same time as their French windows when two young armed men wearing balaclavas hit them, tied them and rob them of their possessions including their wedding rings. They later discover that one of the two men who brutally assaulted them is in fact one of the other workers who made redundant at the same time as Michel.
