France, summer of 1910. During their holidays, the high-class family Van Peteghem travel to their luxurious mansion in Slack Bay, a place where the sea and Slack River mix during the high tides. Billie, the rebellious daughter, falls in love with Ma Loute, a member of the Bréfort family, a group of fishermen who also live in the area. When both families discover the relationship between their beloved ones, a great confusion will take over their lives, threatening their lifestyles and all their social conventions. In the middle of this situation, some tourists begin to disappear in strange circumstances in Costa Canal. Dragged by this mystery, inspectors Machin and Malfoy discover that the center of such crimes is in Slack Bay.
