Esch-sur-Alzette, a place where time seems to have stood still stuck for 20 years. Everything seems old, everything seems tired, the people who live there and the streets. Melissa does everything to save her couple. It would be easier if her husband Tun, who comes from a modest and homophobic background were not madly in love with his colleague Alex, who is fully open about his homosexuality. The three of them end up in a hellish and toxic love triangle. But will Tun find a way out of this situation?
