Pursued by the police for having beaten his mother and sister, Remy, a young redhead who has been bullied by his soccer teammates, is taken in by Patrick, a guidance counsellor and fellow redhead. He convinces Remy that all his troubles stem from the color of his hair. Vulnerable to Patrick's influence, Rémy relies squarely on him when he discovers that his girlfriend, whom he met through a website, is actually a boy. Fed up, the two take to the road, with Remy deciding to head for Ireland, land of the redhead. After initially refusing to follow him, Patrick changes his mind and gradually transfers control to Remy.
