Young Martin (Sylvain Copans) has been acting strange. At his school, his teacher and classmates notice that he is less talkative and more withdrawn. When those around him begin to prod, they discover that Martin's single mother has died. Fearful that he will be sent away from home now that he has no parents, Martin looks to his friends for help. With Jerome (Nicolas Parodi) leading the charge to save Martin from the orphanage, the first thing they decide to do is dispose of the mother's body.
