Twelve-year-old Nicolas, the son and grandson of fishermen, lives alone with his mother and sister in a village overlooking the sea. A terrible storm snatched his father a few years earlier. Nicolas must not only deal with his loss, but also the slow disintegration of his grandfather, Jérémie, who has started drinking too much to ease the pain of the death of his son.
Summer vacation is the opportunity for Nicholas to resume his greatest pleasure: playing baseball with his friends. But a major obstacle greets the children who assemble at the village baseball field: the town council has decided to convert the field into a municipal dump.
With Nicolas as their leader, the village children resist the mayor’s manipulation with ferocity and, to their surprise, they receive the support of Jérémie and his old buddies. Come see how they circumvent bureaucracy and bring their community together!
