Three young women and one man. Their lives briefly intertwine in Les Olympiades, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris. Eloquent and brash, Émilie works in a call centre and earns extra money by renting a spare room. She becomes intimate with her attractive new tenant, Camille. But he is attracted to the unattainable Nora, who in turn spends her nights video chatting with cam girl Amber. Jacques Audiard's dynamic black-and-white film sensitively and sympathetically follows a brief period in the lives of contemporary thirtysomethings who shun commitment and chase away loneliness with parties, shallow acquaintances and casual sex. Or do they too yearn for love and mutual understanding?
