A former author and evident bohemian, Marcel Marx, has retreated into voluntary exile in the port city of Le Havre where he becomes a shoe shiner living happily within the triangle of his favourite bar, his work, and his beloved wife. Marx’s life takes an interesting turn when an underage immigrant refugee from Africa arrives by cargo ship and the aging shoe shiner takes pity on the child and welcomes him into his home. A simple yet beautiful film in which ordinary people do extraordinary things.
