22-year-old Leo works in Strasbourg as a prostitute. Working mostly on a quiet road in a wooded area, he belongs to a group of men that service the motorist clientele. Leo develops feelings for Ahd, who is actively seeking escape from this life of nightly hookups with lonely old men. Leo, in contrast, seems to not know or desire any other kind of life, despite friends and doctors questioning his lifestyle. Despite the physical toll of his work and the humiliation that may accompany it, Leo prizes his freedom and never lets go of his ability to love and be loved.
