Mickaël (Vincent Macaigne) is a night doctor who visits troubled neighbours, caring for those no one else seems to. His personal life is falling apart as well. Torn between his wife and mistress, he is pressurised by his pharmacist cousin to write false drug prescriptions. But tonight is different – tonight Mickaël wants out. But at what cost?
