The next day, gnawed by guilt, he decides to go to the hospital to inquire anonymously about his victim. What he does not know is that the entire accident was witnessed from a balcony by a young woman, Juliette, who is going through her own emotional upheavals. Juliette not only called 911, but also helped to contact the victim's wife, Véra, a Moldavian illegal immigrant whom she decides to help and keep company at the hospital. But when Juliette recognizes Al as the reckless driver in the hospital corridor, for some reason she is unable to denounce him. Gradually they get to know each other better through more frequent meetings and phone calls, and Juliette becomes a mediator between Al and the unsuspecting Véra.

Der junge humanistisch gesinnte Lehrer Pabst erfährt am Vorabend des beginnenden Faschismus den in seiner Klasse herrschenden rassistischen Geist am eigenen Leib. Pabst ist Lehrer in einer Hafenstadt am Zusammenfluss von Rhein und Ruhr. Während des Unterrichts muss der dem Humanismus verpflichtete Lehrer mit ansehen, wie seine Schüler zunehmend intoleranter und rassistischer werden. Auch seitens der Schulbehörden kommen Anweisungen zu den neuen Erziehungsidealen der Nation, wie die Vorbereitung auf den Krieg als moralische Aufgabe. Er gerät unter Druck, als Eltern seines Schülers Neumann ihn bei der Schulleitung wegen seiner liberalen Ansichten diskreditieren wollen. Die aufgehetzten Schüler boykottieren seinen Unterricht regelrecht. Ein Ferienlager in den Bergen während der Osterferien soll die Situation entspannen. Als Begleiter wird ein ehemaliger Feldwebel engagiert. Dieser verwandelt das Lager aber zu einer paramilitärischen Ausbildungsstätte für die Jungen. Bei einer Übung stößt der junge Zorn auf ein streunendes Mädchen, das vom Diebstahl lebt, und lässt sich von ihr verführen. Pabst erfährt davon, als er im Tagebuch des Jungen stöbert. Die Ereignisse überschlagen sich, als sein Zeltnachbar Neumann, der von dem undurchsichtigen Traube angestachelt wurde, auch zu dem Mädchen zu gehen, tot aufgefunden wird. Zur großen Überraschung erklärt sich Zorn für schuldig. Es kommt zum Prozess. Die Gerichtsverhandlung gerät zur Farce, die Aussagen der Schüler sind widersprüchlich, und Pabst schockiert mit einem eigenartigen Geständnis... Von da an verschlimmert sich seine Situation, er verliert seinen Posten. Die Welt erscheint ihm immer absurder und er wünscht sich, das Land zu verlassen, in dem 'Diebstahl, Mord und Meineid' herrschen. Überall in der Stadt paradiert und übt schon die militante Jugend, seine einzige Bezugsperson Leopold ist zynisch und fatalistisch geworden. Als schließlich Traube als der wirkliche Täter erhängt aufgefunden wird, ist es für Pabst an der Zeit, das Land zu verlassen, um eine Stelle in Afrika anzunehmen. 'Der Neger geht zu den Negern' wie er lakonisch sagt

A group of revolutionary students experiences rebellion, enlightenment, and change while establishing a commune devoted to free love, anarchy, and nudism, only to see their children eventually engage in a similarly styled rebellion 20 years later. The year was 1968 [France]: Catherine, Yves, and Hervé were 20 years old, and the revolt in May had turned their lives upside down. Enamored by the concept of communal utopia, the three friends move into an abandoned farm in the Lot region and establish a commune. Over time, their longing for freedom and personal accomplishment finds many of the friends walking away from the micro-society they worked so diligently to establish. Flash forward to 1989, when Catherine and Yves' children witness the fall of communism and the onset of the AIDS epidemic. Much like their parents years before, the disillusioned youths begin to question the generation that preceded them while longing for a better world than the one they were born into
