Saint-Charles is a "new town" on the outermost fringe of the Paris suburbs, where the forest is receding as more and more new residential blocks spring up. When the last surviving local industry, the lingerie factory, shuts down, its skilled female workers refuse to knuckle under.
Led by Nathalie, who used to fantasize about designing her own lingerie collection, and Selma, who has just found out she is pregnant with her third child, they decide to organize an amateur wrestling tournament and make money by taking bets. Encouraged by their friend Céline, Nathalie and Selma set themselves the challenge of making it through to the finals. But at the last minute, an unexpected contender joins the fray: Céline's husband has been injured in a terrible car accident, and she enters the tournament in a desperate bid to keep her family's finances afloat.
