After 30-ish Salomé stumbles into a summer job as the caretaker of a waste-disposal site, it becomes a metaphor for the other society outcasts who turn up to join her in this off-kilter dramedy.

Salomé lands a summer job in the junkyard of a village in Southern France where her rebellious adolescence catches up with her. She meets friends, old and new, who all share the same desire: to build a way of life far from any social order.
