In Canada during the summer, 1968, 10-year-old boy Léon lives with his parents and his older brother Jérôme. His parents often fight. Léon often lies. His mother tells him that when he lies he should at least be consistent. He sets fire to the house to get his parents' attention.

His mother leaves the family to start a new life in Greece. Léon's father lies when saying that he does not know where his ex-wife lives. Actually, he does not want them to communicate with her anymore.

Léon attempts suicide several times.

Léon falls in love with his neighbour, Léa. To his regret she moves away with her family.
