Nine-year-old Courgette finds himself in a local orphanage after the death of his mother. Rather than dwelling on their misfortunes, the kids adopt a practical approach to leading their lives. A kindly policeman named Raymond befriends the children and finds himself at the receiving end of their jokes, but it’s the arrival of young Camille that gives Courgette his first taste of hope, and possible romance.
