Alain is a 25-year-old bare-knuckle fighter with no home and no job, and a 5-year-old son to bring up. In a bid to start a new life for them, he hitchhikes from Belgium to Antibes with the intention of moving in with his sister and her husband. One day, he meets Stephanie - who works as a killer whale trainer - in a nightclub where a fight has taken place. It's not long before the pair find themselves falling for each other and their relationship becomes ever stronger when Stephanie has an accident at work which causes her to lose both her legs. Alain is determined to help her recover and assists her as she learns to walk again with prosthetics whilst pursuing his own deeper redemption within Stephanie as their love develops.
