Pick out a young girl in the street, any girl, preferably very dirty and very ugly, hideous even, aggressive if possible, and make her a star: this is Gérard's wager. Already a has-been at the age of 36, Gérard must absolutely rise to this impossible challenge to avoid winding up on the dole. But what might be a fairy tale for any other young girl quickly becomes a nightmare for Lola Zipper. Born in filth, the 18-year-old street person has no intention of buying into his pie-in-the-sky ideas. She refuses to be transformed; she is happy the way she is. It is up to Gérard to prove her wrong. A strange adventure ensues in which they bicker and fight, provoke, discover and tame one other, sometimes touch and even talk to one other without anything really coming to pass. The aborted fairy tale thus turns into an urban fable: who digs a hole for another, falls in it himself.
