Antoine has just turned eighteen and is already   descending into a downward spiral. He left his vocational training program and is now squatting at his parents’ house loosely looking for a job, but spending most of his time shoving medications into his mouth, drinking and smoking too much, and generally bumming around.

And she believes his lies. But their relationship is getting more and more serious.
