Francesc is a solitary thirteen-year-old boy who finds by chance a book by Albert Camus in school. Fascinated by the philosopher’s ideas, he starts calling himself Jean-François, raises his coat collar and decides to become an existentialist. Jean-François sets his mind on going to Paris to meet Camus. Lluna, a teenage girl older than him who lives in the present agrees to go with him on one condition: they must make a stop on the way to see the French boy she had an adventure with last summer. Jean-François and Lluna take off to discover the sense of life with or without Camus.
