Ron recites a poem by Baudelaire from a book he's found on the street. Ti-Red, fresh out of prison, combs every inch of the district in search of his homeless native girlfriend. Marco and Rob, high on crack, have to figure out how to get more money. Daguy, a homeless artist, who has been camping out at the Occupy Montreal camp, wants to find a place to sleep out of the cold. Meanwhile, a spontaneous demonstration is raging in town to protest yet again against the murder by the police of a homeless man.

This film retraces the trajectory of seven men in downtown Montreal, the body being their only tool in their attempt to remain alive with some dignity.
