November/December 1995, and France is paralysed by the transportation strikes. The huge traffic jams oblige Parisians to walk or cycle their way through the winter months. Nadia is a young woman who survives on minimum allowance with her six-month-old son, Christopher. One day whilst watching the news, she thinks she recognises the baby’s missing father in a crowd of striking rail-workers at Austerlitz station. She decides to go and find him.
