The story of irresponsible Primo, who is preparing to write the baccalaureate that he has already failed once. He’s a middle-class kid from a respectable provincial family, the son of a florist — all in all, nothing special. He falls in love with Gabrielle, sleek and sexy, definitely haute-bourgeoisie; she hangs with a haughty, self-confident group of preppy youngsters who drive fast cars and vacation in Saint-Tropez. This unlikely romance — is Gabrielle really in love with Primo, or is he just the latest in a long line of admirers? — plays out against the bohemian lifestyle of our self-styled hero, who pretends to be something he isn’t to impress his new girlfriend. Primo finds him­self biting his left-wing tongue as Gabrielle’s friends casually air their right-wing views with hauteur and arrogance. And to top it all off, things are getting real in the streets. As the election heats up, Primo finds it harder and harder to conceal what he really thinks.
