Abandoned by his father, 19-year-old Boni (Colin) lives alone in his dead mother's apartment — his dissolute existence epitomized by his sexual obsession with a baker's wife (Bruni-Tedeschi). When his 15-year-old sister Nenette (Houri) arrives on his doorstep seven months pregnant, Boni must deal with the consequences of his sister's pregnancy and the fact that she refuses to identify the father. Against this backdrop, Nenette et Boni explores the complex relationship between a brother and sister as they struggle with adolescence and the ensuing turmoil that follows when their father (Nolot) returns.
