Jérôme and his mother struggle to keep their dairy farm running. One morning, he heads for town to look for work for a couple of months. Jérôme then strikes up a friendship with La Chignole, a boisterous tramp, and gets hired by the local mayor to assist another worker, Lucien, to decorate the town’s Christmas trees. But it’s not long before an unexpected and less pleasant aspect of his job is revealed when city hall anti-begging laws to “clean out” the town center of its homeless people and tramps during the Christmas period. Lucien puts the pressure on and Jérôme carries out his job. That is until the day he discovers that La Chignole is one of the homeless convoy.
