he petite waitress Johnny works and lives in a truck-stop, where she's lonely and longs for love. She develops a crush on the garbage truck driver Krassky, although her sleazy boss Boris warns her that he's gay. Maybe because of her boyish looks, Krassky likes her too. They begin an affair, which is complicated by the fact that he cannot achieve an erection so as to perform vaginal intercourse. The pain of anal intercourse is so great for Johnny, though, that her screams cause them to be thrown out of a series of motels. Both don't notice the growing jealousy of Krassky's boyfriend Padovan - until an escalation. It includes elements of symbolism recurrent in Gainsbourg's work: death and sex. Gérard Depardieu has a few short appearances, playing a homosexual bestialist.
