Depicts life at the court of Louis XVI, circa 1780. The ever-fluid pecking order is determined by the quality and rapidity of one's rejoinders, and a man can be driven to suicide by the one thing that must be avoided at all costs - being the object of ridicule. Compassionate, upright engineer, Gregoire Ponceludon de Malavoy, is baron of an estate where peasants are dropping like flies, felled by diseases that breed in the fetid waters where they fish. Broke, but determined to drain the murderous swamps, Gregoire sets out from the provinces to plead his case at Versailles. But his mission is complicated when he finds himself locked in a dangerous triangle with two very seductive ladies - a sophisticated older woman who can help him and an innocent young beauty with nothing to offer but her love

Comédie. Le destin de Bazil, employé sans histoire dans un club vidéo, bascule le soir où, alors qu'il est témoin d'une fusillade entre deux gangs rivaux, une balle perdue se loge dans son cerveau. À sa sortie de l'hôpital, où le chirurgien a choisi de ne pas l'opérer, le jeune solitaire aux sens déréglés se retrouve sans abri et sans boulot. Sa bonne étoile ne tarde pas à remonter grâce à Placard, un clochard qui le conduit dans une caverne urbaine squattée par une bande de joyeux lurons qui vivent de la récupération. Sa nouvelle famille l'aidera bientôt à se venger des deux marchands d'armes qui ont gâché sa vie: celui qui a fabriqué la balle enfermée dans son crâne, et celui qui a manufacturé la mine antipersonnel qui a autrefois tué son père, le condamnant à un destin d'orphelin.
