The Étoile Filante is a small bar nestled in a corner of Brussels’ old town. It is run by Kayoko, whose quiet demeanour hides an explosive temper. Her partner Boris is a reserved bartender with a murky past as a political activist.
The everyday humdrum of the bar is upended one night when Georges, injured in a terrorist attack in 1986, finds the man who committed it: Boris. Georges bursts into the bar armed and bent on revenge, but he’s stopped by the unexpected arrival of Kayoko’s faithful employee Tim, ex-military man and bouncer at the bar.
