The story follows the misfortunes of an ex-convict, called Kermek, a bizarre man wearing a yellow aloha shirt and a fedora. Kermek is a big fan of Jean-Pierre Melville's "Le Samouraï" and has a grand, unusual dream: to open a movie theatre somewhere in that "middle of nowhere". After a conflict over some money stolen from a local mobster, Kermek takes the money and sets off with manic pixie dream prostitute Eva to make his dream come true. Can he stay out of the grasp of the mobster and his cronies though?
