Ali suddenly finds himself with a five-year-old child on his hands. Sam is his son, but he hardly knows him. Homeless, penniless and friendless, Ali takes refuge with his sister in Antibes where things improve immediately. She puts them up in her garage and takes the child under her wing. Ali first runs into Stephanie during a night club brawl.
He is poor, she is beautiful and self-assured and trains killer whales at Marineland. When a performance ends in tragedy, a call in the night again brings them together.
