The story takes place in France during the summer, on a coastline. We can not be precise in order to preserve the anonymity of the place and characters. Every day, young man from a family, who spends her holidays at the beach, as many of our compatriots, are going to pick up food from supermarket trash.

The story takes place in France during the summer, on a coastline. We can not be precise in order to preserve the anonymity of the place and characters. Every day, young man from a family, who spends her holidays at the beach, as many of our compatriots, are going to pick up food from supermarket trash. Just before lunch time. They do not starve. This is a family holiday like other. They do it by challenges, snub the "system" in a good mood, to demonstrate that dumpster here feeds 6 adults and 2 children. We can only stay a few minutes there and photographs should be stolen. Of course, these expeditions is theft. It is even necessary to enter on private property. But it is especially the scandal of mass distribution, waste and overproduction. Products are outdated the day or the day before, sometimes it's just the packaging damaged. There are also products actually impossible to consume, you must sort. A few minutes before they "cost" of money, a few minutes after they are discarded and lose this money "value" but no nutritional value. Throughout the country, supermarket bins are overflowing and sprayed chemicals or sheaf so that no human being could eat one of these products. Here the structure is too small, it does not, not yet.
