The Parisian flea market is a magical place where different eras and civilizations collide to the delight of the bargain-hunters, tourists and retailers alike.

Maud is a translator who works at the flea market to earn some extra money. Her relationship with Benoît is doomed to fail as they don't want the same things. He's ready to marry and start a family while she does not want children at all. Because she was adopted she can't imagine creating a life when she knows nothing about her own ancestry.

When Maud and a handsome customer flirtatiously haggle over the price of an antique, everything will change.

As Maud opens herself up to new possibilities, her circle of friends from the flea market - representing all walks of life -- go through their own dramas and joys.
