In France, from 1929 (the year which saw the birth of the oldest amongst them) to 1979 (when their paths finally crossed), Jean, René, Jeanine, born in three different regions, three different environments, learn, work, struggle for possessions, whether the real or imaginary, rebel or yield, whereas Henri Laborit, a biologist, questions himself (and us) on the behaviour of the human species.
