Jacques is an actor who runs away to the countryside to escape his gambling debts. He meets Simon, a rough and wily farmer who manipulates him into a business relationship.

By the time they get to the winter harvest, the three have learned to live together, but outside forces threaten the delicate balance of their little business…
