Synopsis

Sixteen year-old Seb was abandoned at birth. He can't bare a quiet moment: he rushes on, grabbing, pouncing, then discarding. He hangs out with his friends, night after night, up to no good in the neighborhood. One day Seb decides to get hold of his adoption file. He needs to be eighteen to read it, so he sets up a scam with his elder friend Sam. Just before getting busted they manage to catch Seb's biological father's name--Pierre Mertens. After calling up all the Pierre Martens entries in the phone book, Seb decides to seek out one of them who catches his fancy: a marginal guy, manager of a climbing center by day, gambler by night. Fascinated, Seb cheats and lies in order to win his affection. He meets his daughter Julie, who falls in love with him. One evening, Seb realizes that Pierre can't be his father. He goes back to his original mission, in search of an encounter which is not what he had in mind.
