Jacek is a boxer. He lives in violence and loneliness. His everyday life is the reflection of his youth when he fled the cold war in Poland with his parents. At that time, France meant 'hope' for his parents. Today, he is an adult but heis alone and wild, incapable of forging bonds with other people. He fought all his life and he still doing it because it's the only thing he knows to do. He fought to achieve successful integration and incites people to do the same. But he works as a garbage collector to earn money. Even if his testimony shows a life full of disappointments, Jacek didn't loose hope. This, because of one thing : music.
