Believing that sex only distracts an athlete's focus, he has never bothered much with girls until he meets Fabienne (Mireille Perrier), the single mother of one of his mates.
Written by Bernard Stora the film is produced by Annie Miller. Awarded the Golden Pyramid for the Best screenplay at Cairo International Film Festival, the film won several international awards.
