600 Euros (France)

During the French presidential campaign in the spring of 2012 and in a climate characterized by the rise of the extreme right, some, like Marco, move away from politics and no longer vote. Both disappointed by politicians and mired in financial problems, Marco gradually turns his back on our society. Approaching forty, he takes stock of his life and realizes that he has not achieved his goals.
