Since his teenage years, Ludo has devoted himself body and soul to activism. In the midst of political action, wounded in the face and abandoned by his own people, Ludo is rescued by a young woman in the crowd, Lisa. After two months in prison, the man who was blamed for the "violent abuses within the ultra-left", sets out to find her. But as the clandestinity he wants to get away from catches up with him, Ludo learns that the illness that has been weakening Lisa since the summer is cancer. A race against the clock starts to give him the vital impetus she has given him when she met them.
