Marcel Marx, a former author and a well-known bohemian, has retreated into voluntary exile in the port city of Le Havre, where he feels he has reached a closer rapport with the people serving them in the occupation of the honorable, but not too profitable, profession of a shoe-shiner. He has buried his dreams of a literary breakthrough and lives happily within the triangle of his favorite bar, work and his wife, Arletty, when fate suddenly throws in his path an underage immigrant refugee from Africa. When Arletty becomes seriously ill, Marcel once more has to rise against the cold wall of human indifference wielding only his innate optimism and the unwavering solidarity of the people of his neighborhood, but against him stands the whole blind machinery of the Western constitutionally governed state, this time represented by the dragnet of the police, moment by moment drawing closer around the refugee boy. It's time for Marcel to polish his shoes and reveal his teeth.
